CG was fine but I am using a 2450 Zippy compact, FY41ap (and its heavy power module) so the AUW is quite high compared to stock. I was also using the GoPro in its waterproof case and a rather crudely large bolt to fix it (and its tripod mount) to the cockpit. I also think the bathroom sealer i used to fill/ repair a mising light pod was a little heavy
It was floating just above the water line but as soon as it dipped slightly under the water filled the cockpit tray which then weighed it down further. Still it survived without a bead so i was happy.
