Note that the dive test in most of these charts assumes a symmetrical airfoil. With a flat bottom airfoil the dive test might say you have the CG too far forward until you have pushed the CG back beyond where its possible to recover from a spin.

Do a second check of level flight just reducing speed without re-trimming. The plane should not have the tail come down. (unless you are doing 3D... they often push the CG back that far)
