E=Flight Mini Ultra Stick titing up on power

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
The set up is a stock E-Flight Mini Ultra Stick with an E-Flight 480 outrunner on 11x7 APC e-prop, not the park flyer flimpse prop. Took off and as soon as I throttled up, the nose pitched upward to almost vertical and then when I throttled back, it dives. What a scary flight, almost totalled it on its maiden.

The CG is dead on according to the owner's manual - 2 1/4 inches from the leading edge, and firewall/engine mounting placte is built as plan, butted against the front of the fuz.

Shimmed with couple of washers to increase down trust after the first flight, and still no help.

Any thoughts, really appreciate your help.

I can't help but wonder what the incidence angle of the wing is in relation to the horizontal stabilizer? The best way to check is by using a robart incidence meter if you have one available there. Sounds like your wing may have a higher angle of attack.
