Default Maintaining forward flight

I got a trex 100x about a month ago as my first heli. What a great trainer! Who would have guessed that I could have so much fun crashing a dearly loved vehicle.

My skill flying has improved, but I still have trouble sustaining brisk forward flight- especially when traveling at one speed, and then attempting to slow, but continue to move forward. I watched closely while flying, and in circumstances like this there is little if any forward defliction of the rotor disc even with full elevator input from the Tx. I've graduated to both the long swash balls, and using the lateral servo arm holes to achieve the greatest mechanical control input posdible.

Is this just a feature of the fly-bar, and a trade off for the stability it imparts? Is there any mod to the fly-bar that will reduce this quirk of flight performance (shaving weight off the fly-bar paddles, or installing the adjustable weighted fly-bar I've seen advertised)?

Any thoughts, or flight plan work arounds that I haven't found yet?
