for the horizontal stabilizer where should it be? I guess moving it forward will help but there is nothing to indicate where it should be.

Mine looked like this before I put the UH-1 fuse on it. Probably won't make that much difference. Just saying to put the canopy on it with the battery in whatever position to make it happen, then start taping lead weights to the underside of the nose of the canopy till it balances. Then secure those weights to the inside of the canopy when it's balanced.
In your vid, you balanced it with the rotor blades along the line of the heli. Try turning it 90 degrees (blades out to the sides) and try it that way. You still hang it from the flybar as in the video.

BTW, before I converted it to scale, I used the canopy off my Blade 400. It's longer so can allow the battery to go further forward.
