I can answer questions about designing, building, testing and flying single stage model rockets using 1/4 to D size engines.
I have been flying model rockets for about 25 years. I have been designing rockets for about 15 years.
I have written articles that have appeared in the local newspapers Weekend/Hobby section.
I have been taught basic aerodynamics by The US Air Force.
I have been awarded many Certificates of Appreciation from the Boy Scouts and local schools for giving demonstrations and guiding scouts to earn their rocketry badge.

Placing the weight in different spots will not really effect the speed or height the rocket will go. It could effect the stability of the rocket. Look at the link I provided and the Center of Gravity section
Hello Alex - The weight of a model rocket will effect the speed and height a rocket will go. The model rocket engine has a certain thrust. The engine has to create more thrust than the rocket weighs for
