Default The beast was tail heavy

Wow flew it today , what a wild maiden .Went like a un-controled rocket !!
Got it down only breaking prop in process.(inverted landing)lol lol
The beast was tail heavy. Had checked this serveral times during building but not accurately enough.
Learn by our mistakes !!!!! Is balanced PERFECTLY now !!!!!!
Will fly again next weekend.

I'm guessing that you were trying to fly it a bit too fast. It doesn't fly like a conventional airplane, it likes to fly slow, and nose high.
Here's a video of me flying mine:
http://users3.ev1.net/%7Ecdjump/main...a3dthphigh.WMV - high bw
http://users3.ev1.net/%7Ecdjump/main...pa3dthpmed.WMV - 56k.

if you notice, in level flight, i fly no more than about 1/3 throttle. The only time i use more is for high alpha, and 3d.
