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

I picked up a little tip from a kit/ARF mfr in our area for balancing big planes, which is so simple I slap myself for not having thought of it: balance your plane in your usual manner, with wing on, then remove the wing and balance again with just the fuselage. Note the difference, and then make and check all your adjustments with the wing off--much easier to handle. Another tip is to refer all CG measurements to front or back of the wing tube.
