I just got my RTF bixler today and build it this evening with some of the mods from page 1. I also took out the washers in the front with the hot water technique. But as I was trying to get the right CG with the 1300 mAh battery all the way up to the front I found that I actually had to put 3 of the 4 washers back in to get it right at 60 mm from the LE. Is this normal or did I do something wrong here?

I did add a little weight to the rear by adding a 2,5 mm carbon fiber rod to the horizontal stabilizer and one to the bottom of the plane as well, but I don't think this should have that large an effect on the balance right?
With my 2200 mAh in the front I didn't have to put in the washers but still, it had to be really as much forward as I could get it to get the CG right.

Unfortunately it is already dark now and I have to wait until tomorrow to maiden it
