Doug,

Worry about finished weight AND where the CG of the fuse alone is. I can make survivable fuses at 37g but they need more noseweight. Rather than dump in lead I've settled on two extra 1.7 kevlar layers up front that bring the weight to 42g or so but move the CG an inch forward. My normal fuses are around 42-44 with canopy and tail mount (1.2g with screws typical.)
