Default Jet pushers always a tail heavy problem.

I took some time to beat the weight in the tail problem. NO extra weight needed completely balances at the COG everytime. Heard that one before.

Also put the leads of the motor facing foward for neater package. The 1/8" motor shaft is about 3/4 oz. SS shafting. It reaches the cockpit before cutting. With the battery in the foward battery compartments.. then the ESC..then the motor.. a piece of thick walled 1/8" Aluminum tubing drilled to fit the 3 mm motor shaft & the 1/8" driveshaft. 2.. 1/8" sealed car bearings are spaced to prevent the shaft from whipping around.
