Hi Bob,

The HDE frame doesn't have the raised and slanted platform at the front for mounting the battery so am I right in assuming that the only option is lashing it to the stubby platform ahead of the motor ?

I have not yet begun the tail assembly, but with the motor, ESC, servos plus another 190g of battery all well forward of the main shaft, it's hard to see how the CG can be brought back in line with the shaft. Sure the Rx and gyro are aft, but together they weigh less than 20g so that's not much help.

Is it just the cantilevered leverage of the tail that sorts out the CG or am I missing something ?
