Suggest you have someone launch the model for you and remember the faster you go, the less deflection of elevons you need. Have them launch about 10 degrees up. Too steep, and it will roll over.
If you want to see 2 videos with a designed FSW out of wack with CG, i will show you. Then a flight with it proper if you don't beleive me.

I've marked the CofG position and with the battery I've chosen balances it well. At least I don't have the problem of torque roll to deal with :)
Absolutely I will have someone else throw it!!!
