House Of Balsa 1/2A Sport Steath

I was considering building the House Of Balsa 1/2A Sport Steath:

I have a few questions. The kit calls for the use of a Cox BlackWidow
engine. I was wondering if the Norvel BigMig .049 C/L would be a good
alternative for the Cox engine. Here is the setup I was considering:

My main question is that the Norvel setup with the fuel tank/mount
seems to be a little longer than the Cox BlackWidow. Will this
throw-off the balance so much that you couldn't compansate by shifting
the radio equipment around?

Thanks!

It shouldn't. I got the plans several years ago from MAN, and they provide
for using the larger, longer Cox Dragonfly engine, and even mention using
the larger Cox Queen Been .074.

I built this plane last year. I put an AP .09 RC engine in it with a micro
servo for the throttle and a 2oz tank in the radio bay. This turned it into
a great flyer.
