Default Tail too heavy ?

I had an accident with my Slowstick and pretty much crushed my tail. [:'(]

I made a new one out of Coroplast. The only problem is that is weighs 2oz whereas the GWS tail weighs 3/4oz.

Is this too heavy ?

I'm using the stock motor with a 6 cell 700mah battery.

Thanks

Don't sweat it. Just make sure the plane balances at 25% of the chord frm the leading edge. Probably have to move the batteries forward.
