been experimenting with the pt-17, yes, they are nose heavy,very. beef-up the kit for strength with carbon fiber flat rods on the front of struts,round for the replacement stock plastic wing spar,add for both wings.to assist in the mounting strength of the lower wing to fuselage,take flat carbon rods as V shape across the outside of wing to screw,carbon fiber tape on the l.e of wings,the fuselage ,as large as it is,is good for now.brushless powered is topps,need to mount the engine as far forward on the stick mount to gain balance,there will be a space from the fuselage to the fake engine cover,i bought an extra one an cut it to fill in the space,it still has the look and the cg balances with the engine not oversized with so much power thats not needed for this mod. to perform very well .replace the wheels using light weight foam wheels.
