Default Typhoon CG Question

A buddy thinks his Typhoon is tail heavy. It flies with a "nose up" attitude. I told him if it was tail heavy, it would be very sensitive on the elevator, which it doesn't seem to be. Any of you Typhoon fliers experience this? Could the incidence on either the wing or stab be off? Noticed in other threads about servos stripping easily. I will warn him to be careful.

Default RE: Typhoon CG Question

i generally fly it inverted to figure out if it's tail heavy or not. If you roll inverted & it climbs with no inputs then it's tail heavy. If you need a touch of down elevator to hold it level then it's about right in my book.
