I was thinking of using a smaller battery but don't need to agravate the cg problem and needing more nose wt.

Here is another cooling pic I forgot to post.

The battery sits forward of the COG and its weight is needed to balance the Minimoa.

She is totally aft COG without any adjustment! I would not worry about weight at this stage and you will probably need to add some to balance LEVEL at the 54mm mark.

You could put a hole in the front of the spinner....but it will spoil the static looks! The openings I have shown in the spinner mods at the prop hubs is more than adequate and will definitely cool the motor with airflow from normal flight.
