My experience is that the overall set-up is slightly nose heavy to begin with. If I pull the main gear down to disengage it from the pinion so the head/shaft can freewheel, install a battery, and then hold the heli on its side (main shaft horizontal) by the head, the nose tips down on mine (even with the extended tail boom). Thus I'm not sure I'd want to shift it further forward, particularly with the stock tailboom. Having said that, I'm not a skilled enough pilot that I'm doing the types of things Finless talked about and so I can't comment on whether mine seamlessly transitions from forward flight to forward inverted flight without excessive elevator stick correction! Someday......
Always learning, and enjoying the process!
