Yes, I probably have to put them on the side. I haven't installed the tail gearbox and rotor yet, but without those it turns out to be pretty much balanced without the batteries. That means I likely have to put them on the sides. In pod and boom it needed two 6s 3300mAh batteries to be balanced, though. Maybe for the test I will just use one in the front.

The reason for it looking so tidy is simple. I flew this helicopter for over a year in pod-and-boom configuration, so everything is attached to the frame. In your build you bought the 550 with the intention of installing it into a fuselage, which meant that you didn't have to squeeze everything into the frame.
