The CG moved forward a little. Now I need to move my Lipo packs aft a little to balance on the main shaft. I also installed the CF boom and CF push rod, so I'm not sure what changes really had the most effect. Got rid of the $10 metal tail servo boom mounts too. I did not weigh anything to see what was lighter.

I also recently installed the 500 Pro OWB which is lighter than the ESP version and went back to my lighter stock canopy and lightened skids after this mod. So who knows?

All I know is I'm happy to be able to shift the lipos and tail servo towards the center of the heli. It's really starting to fly light for an ESP. I should weigh it.

I'm also happy that the annoying bounce-back with hard left rudder stops is gone due to the CF push rod.
