The similar sized House of Balsa T-6 would be unflyable with the c.g. further aft than as shown!
The T-6 is an AWFUL airplane. Sometimes fun to fly, but very sensitive to control throws and will tip-stall at every opportunity!
There was a lot of activity years back racing these things with OS 15 motors. Getting them off the ground at the start was always amusing, directional control on the ground was poor. Switch to the OS25 motor got rid of that problem.
This is my last one, switched to electric when a sufficiently powerful and light motor became available. Still had the too-heavy Nicad battery. With a Lipo, it's a lot better.
