Yes
But i did not find anything, I was looking at a thread in RCU about the larger size version having CG issues. I have it set at 68MM and its tailheavy even with 6oz of lead in the front. Maybe i will just add more lead i guess.

I would pm some of the guys in the thread that are successfully flying theirs, and ask them directly about cog. You don't wanna mess with bad cog.
