Plane design

#1
So today I was flying one of the planes I designed, and the wing snapped and it crashed. I ended up cutting the front of the plane, and I was wondering if I should rebuild the front of the plane, or just keep it as it is and put the wings on.

I agree with @TEAJR6, rebuild. I usually get 3 rebuilds out of a plane, eventually the plane gets heavy as the weight of the glue starts to add up.

You want the plane to balance, that is the CG, at 25% of the wing cord. It's hard to tell form the picture, I'm guessing your plane has a 6 inch cord. If so your CG should be about 1.5 inches from the leading edge of the wing.
