Hi. IMO It depends on where the veritical CG location will be. If you put battery too much above the wing, it could roll upside down. Put it below the wing and you're okay . Test it, tape some weight onto the wing and glide, and under the wing. I've got kinda-wing type airplane with step on the top, and no problem. Check photo in my blog.
