Default How to balance an airplane with a pod mounted engine above the wing

I have a Ken Willard designed Wave Master that has the engine in a pod above the wing. I have tried to balance it both up right and inverted. The problem I have is that when balance is close to being correct, the airplane will either drop nose heavy or tail heavy depending upon the the attitude of the nose. For example, if I hold the nose slightly nose high, the tail will drop. If I hold the nose slightly nose low, the nose will drop. This happens when trying to balance the plane both upright and inverted.

Any suggestions?
