I think the 78mm CofG works well for pitch stability. Mine is flying ok balanced there. Cutting throttle results in a smooth transition to glide with no sudden pitch down, provided the flying speed is adequate. On the other hand, if the plane is flying very slowly and power is cut, the nose may pitch up, so land well before the ESC hits low voltage cutoff.
