So I put the battery inside the canopy which is quite forward from the wing LE.

I was thinking that a little nose heavy planes might fly better in windy conditions, especially when the plane is light in weight. My glider weighs 740 grams now and I thought
740 grams is very light for a 2m wingspan glider and therefore, I made it a little nose heavy intentionally. My plan is to trim the elevator to counter the nose heaviness, if any.
Hope this works.
