first always start at the recommended CofG. if you must, add removable weight. as with double sided foam tape. test fly it. remove a small amount at a time until it flys the way you want, or it gets too tail heavy to fly right. add some back if ya get that far.
most hobby shops and online shops have lead weight with sticky foam tape already on it. sometime you can find it in sporting good stores as well(read fishing supplies).
