Default 55"ws. Series P-51/P-47/Spitfire Comment/???

Have the P-51/P-47/Spitfire 55"ws series with retracts. Have flown P-47 4 flights, other two just once each. Each one is a real handful, very, no extremely touchy on pitch, 51&Spit were almost lost due to extreme pitch control. Did cg check on them, none were any fun to fly, was just glad to get them back.. Anyone else having this trouble??

Is this the FMS brand sold under airfield ??
If so your problem is two fold -
1)cg , to far back
2)elevator , reduce settings
I fly over at Denver Pa , 20 min from you at the high school , P40 and now the P47 , cream puffs , great flyers at 25% of Mac for CG

yes it a shot , reduce the elevator throw ect .
Do you have a half decent place to fly.
The school that I fly at is great but they just put there football bleechers back so takeoffs from the infield are now difficult [&o]
Still a great place to fly and especially fule planes
