Replacing fusalage with CF tube

Would replacing the fusalage on a gentle lady with a CF tube work? Will a CF tube be lighter? If it will work, what size tube should be used?

Stealth Sport Brushless Conver.

would the nose being heavy also have caused it to fly a little squirly? I had to stay on top of it so it would not slide off the straight path. I have the c.g. on the spar per the plans, but I will...

I am not sure how to check the incidence. Running 25% byron 1/2a fuel. I will see if I can find someone at the LHS to tach the engine.
