Test Flew Quickie Q2 C-GMBK

May 11/16 I test flew the Q2 for one circuit at the Springbank airport west of Calgary.  The test flight showed that I had a  much to forward C of G or something else was causing the nose down attitude.  I could not trim out the aircraft and had to hold lots of aft stick pressure.  I kept the circuit high and had 1000 feet on final for good forward speed of 90 on final.  A two bounce landing had me rolling out and wondering what was wrong.  I had to hold full up elevator in the ground effect and I  was probably three feet high causing the bounces before rolling out.  Another serious look at aircraft loading is in order.
