I think that is really about what feels good for you. Nose heavy, or extremely nose heavy reduces the model's reaction to inputs. Neutral to even a slightly tail-heavy CG is good for 3D. I'm not a precision guy, per se, but I do enjoy flying sequences- and the challenge that they present. For that, I prefer my CG to be just forward of neutral. I want to hold just a bit of up trim to maintain level inverted flight, but that is just my personal preference.

Length behind the wing for battery (or any other weight) will not help precision, but it will affect the way the plane reacts to inputs- the more tail-heavy it is, the more pitch and roll sensitive it will become.
