Default Eflite 80mm f16 pitching up when aileron rolling.

As add says. Had the plane bnf. Flew the paint off of it but covered in ha ger rash. Got a new pnp model and moved the electronics all over. Cg is money, about 5mm farther aft than recommended.

At mid to hi speeds, when I induce an aileron roll, the aircraft pitches up like up applying up elevator. There is no mixing currently setup, safe is off, as3x only active on right aileron due to me having flaperons setup.

Would love some opinions from other experienced fliers. Aircraft tracks strait as an arrow. Just gets funky in the turns.

If it pitches up while inverted during your roll, seem like tail heavy with CG further back. While having only one Ail. tab gyro operational, doesn't help either, creating all the cork screw havoc.
