Default RE: GSP Sukhoi very tail heavy. HELP!!!

Agreed.

"stretching" the nose has served me well in the past. I had to do that on my BME Edge. The gap between the cowl and spinner is a little big, but I can live with it.

I am not sure which would be less work. Either way it is gonna be a pain.

Using a lightweight 45cc motor has me at 15 pounds already. That G62 will put you up there even higher. With all these tricks, it may just work out for you. I actually considered getting that motor for it. If that was all it took I would have done it but even with that I still would have needed to move the servos etc.

I don't mind being a little overweight but at some point it gets so heavy it turns into a warbird.
