Default Engine Mount Thrust Plates

I am experiencing a "ballooning" effect with my PT40. I have had to reattach my whole tail assembly in the past 2 months because of a wreck and since this time have not been able to keep the trim for my elevator within range. The trim slide on my Futaba T6XA radio for the elevator is pushed to the top, yet my PT40 still balloons when I try to fly level. I have reset the subtrim and trim on my radio and also adjusted the elevator throws on the plane, however it still won't fly level too long. Would an engine mount thrust plate help this? Any other suggestions for this condition?

Thanks ahead of time,
Steve Hord
