Looks like this:

However, the plane glides very nicely, but when I turn on the motor it goes up and I have to push the elevator hard down to compensate. Despite the fact that I increased the mounting angle of the motor, it still goes up very much, so I guess this won't change unless I reduce power :huh:

I put a 350 W Himax brushless motor on my EasyStar, and got the same nose up attitude as you. I use a APC E 9*7.5 and verical performance, with video gear, is unlimited. Climb is up to 12 metres/sec according to my Zlog.

I have also that motor mounted on my easytar. You should have something wrong with your wings or tail incidence. It´s not normal that with that huge incidence you have in your motor, you still go up when you aply full throtle.

I did a few tests more and I'm currently using a 6,3x3 Slowfly Prop on the AXI 2212-12 which seems to be a good compromise between Power and current. It draws about 10A on a 2-cell LiPo while the Easystar is still controlable without too much interaction, and there's still some Power left to fly on moderate windy days.
