The first thing to do, if at all possible, is to shift the weight of the battery forward, or even increase the size of the battery.

My concern with putting the weight all the way up in the spinner is that the spinner, well, spins. You'd have to worry about getting everything precisely even to prevent the prop/motor from being off balance.

But yes - the farther forward (or backward) the weight, the less of it you'll need.
