Once.you get it balanced you should have no problems flying with the extra weight. I have flown this design under many different weight loads with great success.
It flew great for 2.5 flights. Into the 3rd flight, the battery slipped from the Velcro strap and fell out, pulling the plane nose first into the ground. Its ok though because I want to build it again with lighter foam.
