As an old Fuel Flyer (I still have Glow and Gasoline today ....) I always balanced mine at 1/2tank so on take-off I was 'safe' and on landing I had a touch more flare capability ! but main flight was on CoG.

Larger models I balanced empty as the tank actually did not make such a huge difference in such models.
