A 4320 weighs 380 grams, and a Hacker A50-16S weighs 370 grams....should be just fine...From what I have been told (and can see), other than the color schemes and the wings (ant the wings are just "stretched", same ribs, number of ribs, etc.), the 68" and 70" are identical...

Mine has a 4325 with 6s and pull-pull and had no issue with balance. I tend to fly mine with slightly nose heavy.

I have a 4325 and 8s 4000 and my packs are almost touching the tube for neutral. Seems to far back but that is what it takes, surfaces neutral to.

It feels fine. Where I started and being that nose heavy it didn't have the pitch control I wanted, moving i t back helped that a lot. But IMO it's still a different flying plane. High energy stuff it likes. But harriers easier than any other plane I own.

If you want to make a WOT pass, then ball it up where it looks like a wad, then end up straight and level, this is the one!
