Removing the canards is going to change the lift profile of the plane and this is not a good idea , this will change the area forward and require a shift of the cg rearwards....think of it this way if you INCREASED the size of the canards to double = more area forward , the cg would have to be moved forward other wise it would be a tail heavy situation with that extra lift from the extra forward area...I wont go into the center of pressure travel for different airfoils and plan view shapes
