The important bit about the position of the CofG is how far back from the leading edge it is usually expressed as a % of the width of the wing.
25% is considered a safe point. It looks like yours is currently a bit far forward.
If the CofG is less than 20% it will have to fly much faster than it needs to so will it will feel like it is trying to dive into the ground.
However a bit forward of 'ideal' is much safer than too far back. The saying is "Forward CofG may fly poorly, a rearward CofG will fly once!"

Just out of interest is the battery in the cockpit or under the wing?
