Micro Jodel nose heavy

I've assembled this Mini Jodel. It shows to be slightly nose heavy on my GP CG machine. Do you think it'll fly? I'd hate to have it dissintegrate on it's maiden

I suspect your tail volume is to small, and you'll definately need bigger wheels to ROG off grass.

Your sqd definetely are not from the chell ha avir well your plane have some really nice specs, the big whells is a good advice, and the tail size too, maybe to know about the wing loading will help, after all nose heavy planes have more chances to survive the first attempt.....do yu really built this tiny plane????? wath material did you used?
