I put 7 grams in the tail plus the weight of the epoxy and it had a better dive test. CG is right where they say it should be but I suspect it is still too forward. That is with the 1800 mAh battery. I specked it out on the fourth flight with little effort so IT WILL GO UP...
Also, of note, is that you really don't need the 1800 battery as I have never used over 500 mAh yet. A friend has an extra 1300 battery and I will try that next with the weight still in the tail. That should move the CG back nicely.
