Default Attention Ultra Stick 40 Owners....Question for You

Last night I maidened my US 40 and I must say I love it.......but here's my question:
I wasn't able to get the plane to do a nice upright flat spin, however, it did a very nice inverted flat spin.....has anybody else noticed this, or is it just me??

I couldn't get mine to flat spin at all. How'd you manage? What is your throws and cg at?

CG is about 3 3/4"......within the recommended range....throws were pretty much maxed out.....a bit higher than the manual's recommended high rates. Like I said, it didn't want to do an upright flat spin, but inverted was much better!

Mine would do great upright flat spins. I think the secret was to have a lot of rudder throw and to carry some power to get air moving over the tail. A rearward CG didn't hurt either...
