Default Inverted flight with UMX Micro Revolution 3 Bipe

So I love the flight characteristics of this micro-bipe, but the one thing that puts me off is inverted flight; it requires a lot of down elevator to stay level, and will otherwise go into a dive.
It balances and flies level and straight while upright; and has no up-elevator...the elevator is aligned with the stab.
Could it be an incidence/decadence issue with this plane?
Has anyone had a similar experience, perhaps with a larger size Revolution?

Sounds like a CG problem. I have the batt slid back in the compartment so only about 25% is forward of the back of the hatch. Flies hands off upright and inverted.
