Default FMS Ask23

I just bought a FMS Ask 23 and flew it a couple of times and have had a couple of hair raising moments. The first thing that happened was when giving a little up elev it snaps violently. I tried to add nose weight to desensitize it a bit. Also when I come in for a landing I have to be VERY CAREFUL on the controls as it will stall and snap again. I have about 3 flights and the last was not so good as it snapped and took out the nose. Just wondering of I have a junk plane or is it characteristic of long narrow wings. I have other gliders and they all fly good. It is a scale plane so I'm kinda leaning toward that is how a scale thin wing reacts. Any thoughts.
