Default Align 800 F3C COG issues

Anyone flying the new T-REX 800E F3C in the T-REX 800E F3C Fuselage and have a COG issue?

I've set up 2 of them now (they were upgraded from 700 F3C machines) and both are so tail heavy that the one of the flight packs needs to be off the tray to get to COG even remotely close. Temporarily we've used a piece of carbon fiber as an extension to the battery tray, but it's not something I'm putting a lot of faith in as I fear with the weight of a complete 5800 pack and flexing in flight the extension will eventually snap in flight.

I've compared the manuals and parts list between the 700 F3C and 800 F3C and can't find any changes to the main frame and battery setup. I can't believe that Align would have just slapped on a new boom and expect that there wouldn't be any COG issues with a Fuselage on it.
