Jumpy is right...you should have to have the battery all the way back to get it to 77mm. Mine always wanted to fall onto the left wing as well whenever I sat it on a table. I'm embarrassed to say, it took me a lot longer than it took you to clue into that fact. I just laid a quarter on the right wing and held it level and watched which way it fell, and then adjusted the position of the quarter. Once it gets to the point where it's hard to tell which side it favors, you are probably there.

When you put the arrow shaft in the fuselage, did you first remove the fiberglass spar, or is it still in there. With all the mods you did, how much weight do you think you added to the tail? Maybe that is why you have to push the battery forward to get 77.
