GG, my Electrifly battery weighs about 5 oz. I also have built some extra weight in the rear end. I don't think there would be any problem balancing with a 1320. There is a world of room in front for battery placement. I really love the 2212-10. I have three of them right now. I used one on my 6mmflyrc Skyray pusher and I have one on my Shumate F-18. My planes are not speed demons but they fly very realistically. With a 20 Amp ESC and a 1500 mAh battery, nothing gets hot. In fact, things are just barely above ambient temperatures. So, my planes are easy on my nerves and the power setup is easy on my equipment. Win-win.

Incidentally, I got in two more flights today. This morning in just a slight breeze, you can just hang this plane in a high alpha hover. This wings will rock back and forth and you just balance the drag against power and she just hangs there. Amazing. And touch and goes on the grass are a 'hoot'. Maybe I should say 'slide and goes'.
