Skywalker re-maiden with Ruby autopilot

Yesterday I did a re-maiden with my Skywalker and Ruby on-board.
When I flipped the switch to aided mode, Ruby tried to loop the plane and was near stall. Flipped the switch back to manual mode, did a dive and recovered.

After landing I noticed that the elevator deflection was reversed in aided mode. Something I missed completely during all pre-flight checks.
Jim from uThere checked the flight data later on and noticed that the plane was flown with a maximum of 8g wing load during recover. The plane is just fine and it was obviously worth the efforts to reinforce the wing. A standard wing would been probably snapped.
