E-flite Ultimate 2 - CG question

I began setting up my E-flite Ultimate 2 and when trying to balance, it needs a ton of nose weight. I'm using a glacier 3s 2200 (30c) lipo...has anyone else had to do this? Or can I just put in the battery and go?

Wow guys. I made the maiden flight on mine yesterday and found it to be extremely nose heavy with a Turnigy 3s 2200 up front. I checked it out and it is about .75 oz. heavier than the recommended e-flite pack. I've pushed the pack toward the back now, only the front half of the pack is on the tray with one strap around it and I still need to add 'up' trim to fly level. I'm thinking about adding some weight to the tail now. The plane looks"level" no matter where I put the pack when balancing though. I may need a more sensitive balancer than my finger tips. Any one else finding the plane nose heavy?

By the way, recommended pack is an E-flite 3s 2200. It weighs in at 6.1 oz. The Turnigy pack I'm using is 6.95 oz.

I'm using Turnigy heavy duty 2200 3s at that weight and the front of my pack is just behind the front of the plastic tray.
