Is that better ? To link a video ... just use the "VRIV5gGZd4U" of the address

I get impression that maybe she is tail heavy ? You did well to fly her and keep her in good condition ...

Cheers

Looks like you got her under control there Momo!
I built one of those FT Spit's but it did not fly good for me and i scrapped it and built another airplane to take its place. Maybe some day i will build another one.
