Default Trouble entering inverted elevator

I'm flying a 30% MX-2 50cc. I can be going slow inverted and pull up to enter an upright elevator and all is good, it flips right side up and into the elevator. But when I am right side up and push full down to enter inverted elevator, as soon as it inverts it flips to its left and heads down with the canopy toward me. It will do larger outside loops with power on but doesn't like anything with a lot of down elevator. Why is it ok going to upright but not inverted?

Too much throw? Or is there a mix?

try less levator and a touch of idle up to stabilize, easy on the rudder or it may fall out easily. adjust from there.

Thanks for your input guy's. There is no mix going on and smaller amounts of elevator wont help but I did find I can do either one of two things to avoid the issue. Some left rudder for a couple seconds helps or, if I give it a small blast of prop this will also stabilize it.
