My CG is 5mm rearward from the recommended spot (changed to get more elevator response on landing).

She flies awesome

The only thing Im not happy about is that if I want to do maintenance on the edf unit or experiment with different motors there is no way of doing so since the unit is glued in.
That's going to be one of the top priorities on the mod list if I decide to build another one but so far Im happy and Im having a lot of fun

One of my friends strategically drilled a small hole through the airframe and motor housing that allows him to remove the spinner and motor. Another thing that helps is to make sure you grind the hole on fron of the fan housing large enough for the spinner adaptor to pass through without having to remove it from the motor.

I was thinking more of an access hatch, something more traditional.

Yup, I was thinking the same with the hatch. I did a similar access hatch on a Gripen to put a 90mm in it. Here!

Completed another 8 flights today, had a lot of fun.

I used the bungee system for the first time, Its the first time I use such a system in my RC career (+20years) and I have to say, I didn't expect it to work as good as it did, Its a perfect launch every time and Im going to use it every time as it is effortless and consistent compare to hand launching.

I used a magnet to find it.

Slide a magnet along the bottom of the wing and you will be able to locate the blind nut that is under the covering and balsa skin. Use a sharp exacto to cut away just enough to make room for the hook and nut.

The bungee is so easy that my wife was launching my jet, if my wife can launch it perfect every time anybody can (its a no brainer)
