Jerry,

The CP on the Big Daddy is roughly 15" from the nose so you'll need enough nose weight to move the CG to 11.5" (for 1.5 calibers of stability). I haven't done 3-Ds but for reference my 1-24mm/4-18mm cluster took 3.25oz and I believe my son's 4-D cluster took nearly 5oz.

Oh, and does it work? You bet! Good luck...
