I'll plead guilty to making mine nose heavy on purpose because I didn't trust the assembly manual's specificaton. It called for 165mm (about 6-3/8 inch) from the wing leading edge of a wing with a 14" root chord.
Just a phobia of tail heavy I suppose but when it comes to a delta I like to start around 1/3 of the chord and work my way back a little at a time. You know how it goes, a nose heavy plane doesn't fly well but a tail heavy one usually doesn't fly but once.
