First of all where did you have to add the weight, nose or tail? 2 lbs over what it calls for is no good something wrong there. Be more specific with your question.

The airplane is tail heavy. The weight had to be added to the nose. With weight added the weight of the airplane weight as 8.6 lbs. The published wt was 3100 grams or 6.83 lbs. I have added niothing that was not shipped with the aircraft. I used standerd servo and standard 4.8 battery with a futuba 6017 2.4 gig receiver. the published CG is 68 to 72 cm. With a horizon CG machine set to 70 cm I had io add 1lb 4oz to balance. As stated above there are no add on extras, just the basic aircraft that was supplied. This CMP sold bt Nitroplanes. Thanks
