Default Heli Balance / COG

Is your 500n nose or tail heavy?

Mine is definitely tail heavy. I've moved the rx battery as far forward as possible with little difference.

I would preferred if it was a nose heavy especially if you go inverted...

Same here.
If, at first, you don't succeed, then skydiving is probably a bad idea for you.
