Default Freestyle 53"

hi! I recently bought this model brand new here at AMR in QC.I have an issue while in flight it keeps pitching up while releasing the sticks. I trimmed I down a bit but the the elevator response is funky a bit.I check the CG as it balanced perfectly on the wing tube like its supposed to be?Any clues why it does that?

What servo are you using on the elevator? It may not be centering correctly causing the elevator trim to change. You can also try moving the CG forward 1/8", with the CG on the wing tube the airplane will have a very neutral CG and can become pitch sensitive at certain speeds.

The incidence is fine, I'd be more concerned with the weight of the 225 servo you are using, it is 1/2oz heavier than the HS85 that we recommend, on an airplane this size that will make a huge difference. Move the CG forward and go fly, that should solve your problem.
