CG of Bix3

Hello guys, I've bought the Bix3, and I flied it stock, with the battery all the way in the front. It seemed a little tail heavy. I placed about 50 grams of lead in the cockpit, and now I think it's alright. My CG is on the servo wire of the flaps. Can anyone say whether this is correct or not?
Thanks, Julian

Balance point of the Bix3 is directly on the alluminium wing shaft. I have two bix3's and they both need quite a lot of added nose weight, I wouldn't recomend trying to fly it without any added weight as they are designed to be an fpv plane with camera etc way up front.

I use a 3 cell battery and a mobius camera mounted on the plywood canopy and it still requires a bit more added weight.
