F-5 pitching up

When I fly my F-5, it pitches up for nothing. I expect the nose to pitch a little with full throttle, but even when I am cruising, the nose wants to pitch up. I constantly have to apply forward pressure on the stick, and if I kick on the afterburner, I have to push the stick almost full forward to remain level. It's a lot of work.

 

I don't have this issue with my other modules, and I have checked my keymap and axis tune. I even set a little dead zone so when the stick is neutral, it doesn't send any input.

 

Is this a known bug, or quirk of the aircraft? Am I missing something?

 

Thanks!

Standard procedure is to set trim before take off. From start up the plane starts at zero. You should be +5-7 for a normal full fuel/sidewinder loadout, +7-9 for centerline bomb/rocket pods/sidewinders/full fuel. Landing clean you would be pretty far up in trim too, like +7-ish for a near empty jet landing around 160 kia.
