@DGrant,
I was planning on leaving it near the firewall per the plans not on the CG. That is good advice about the different operation of both engine types.
About the tank. The plans are vague. I...

I saw someone covering their similar size warbird with 1 oz so I'm feeling pretty good about 3/4 oz. May have to land with a little extra power!

Where do you find 1/2 oz cloth (other than Balsa USA which everything is expensive)? I bought 3/4 oz on ebay. Will 3/4 oz make a big difference on a, say, 60 size Warbird?

Yes it answers it perfectly. I like the added step of removing excess glue. Makes sense and not sure why I wasn't doing it. Wood glue dries outside in so if I add too much then I can imagine trapped...

YES! Vindicated! I'm not the only one. Your description is exactly what I am going to do. If I cut carefully I can use the section I cut to glue on the opposite side.
