I think the Microheli frame was going to try to shift around the electronic placement to correct this. I assume being still a Team pilot younger good deals on parts so why go Lynx or Microheli so how do you deal with the tail heavy feel?

And I have a similar question as the 360 how do you have your Tx configured?
IMHO, the aluminum option parts are just for looks, but they do look nice. I was still working for Horizon when the parts were installed on my heli. My tx is configured fully stock as the manual suggests, though I did lower gains a touch when I put on the Zeal blades.

I run the battery pretty far forward on the tray. I don't have any complaints with the way it flies, and it doesn't "feel" tail heavy to me.
