show stopper reverse pitch prop

I got this for my birthday and so far have not had too much success flying backwards. I think I need help setting up my radio to fine tune the pitch, or perhaps the balance needs to be different on a plane that flys backwards . I am using a Axi 2208 34 outrunner and 750 ma 11.2 lipo the plane is a exta 260. This is the new offering from eflite and supposidly the one that Quizi flys with this same set up. But about all the plane will do is stop forward flight tail ticks arround and plane heads straight down all be it very slowly but I can not get it to do much more than that. I have seen vids that show the plane doing very much more. for a plane that weighs only 10 oz i do not get that much thrust out of this engine set up I have the same engine on a rcuniverse bipe using a good old 10x 4.75 prop and get outstanding performance. Also I am using the gws 15amp speed controler dose this impeed my performance any?
