Default RE: nose length?

You can do some chopping and the plane will still be OK. I built a Blitz from Aspect Aviation and it was wildly nose heavy. I moved the fuselage mounted servos behind the wing and even reconfigured the receiver pack to fit at the rear of the fuselage. Still no good. So I held my breath, took out the razor saw and whacked off one inch of the nose and reset the firewall. (This was a .25 size engine.) The plane flew great.

The attached photo is my later redesign of the fuselage which kept the shortened nose and it also is a wonderful flyer.
