Default Balancing an Ikarus Pitts

Hi Everyone,

I have just finished building an Ikarus Pitts S1-S shockflyer. Everything went well with the build but I have one concern.
The plane tips to the left if you try to balance it on your fingertips.
The CG is fine, got that without problem.
What I want to know is should the plane be balanced across the wings as well as nose to tail balance (CG)?

Thanks in advance,

Brian.

Usually you can put the batt. on one side or the other to balance.
