Default Porky Assassin

I built an assassin flying wing but somehow got it tail heavy and too heavy overall. Not sure where i went wrong, but I am looking for some suggestions on a fix. CoG is about 6.75 back and the overall weight is ~18.3 ounces. I havent tried to fly it yet in fear that it will fly poorly due to weight and CG. One thing that i didnt notice until the wing was built is that it isn't 34" as described in the RCGroups post, it is 38 inches tip to tip. Any help is appreciated.

Can you go to a heavier battery in the "stock" cavity. Wings with aft CG can get "interesting" in a hurry

19 oz isn't heavy for a wing that size. As indicated in the other thread, lose that 3D prop saver - you're going to need (and later want) all the thrust you can get.

(don't panic - I don't land the planes)
(but I've been known to lie.....)
