Nose heavy? Tail heavy? Need more info. When set to the 3" figure in the manual it will feel wrong. The suggested CG now sees the battery anywhere from only the cables under the strap to about 1/2" of battery aft of the strap.

I set my 11.1V 3S 2200 so that the aft end of the battery is even with the aft end of the aileron servo wire channel in the foam, basically, I have 1/4" to 3/8" of battery showing aft of the battery strap.

Tracks very smooth with the battery here.

At 1/4 throttle or deadstick it comes down on final like it is on rails.

Good luck and enjoy the Extra, it really is a good plane.
