That longer nose would sure help solve the cg issue with this model.

One thing I like about flying this plane is the rudder control. It's unlike any other scale type plane that I've flown. You can do the best flat turns and even some nice opposite bank turns. And it does great knife edges with almost no elevator coupling.

Strangely though I find it hard to do a clean loop, but that's probably just me mixing in too much aileron on the right stick.

Landings can be a bit tricky, you really need to fly it in for a three pointer to stop it either bouncing back up or nosing over.

A flying buddy has the balsa version from hobbyking. Similar size but slightly wider wing and longer fuse. And its very heavy in comparison. Seems to fly ok though, even with a heavier 2200 battery.
