OK here is how the lipo wire is routed when I fly. The other photo shows my CG position. It is 1 3/16 (30mm) from the wing line as seen in the photo. The plane flies great that way and does not act nose heavy at all. The stabilizers really need about 2 degrees removed and the CG moved back. Not sure why some of these they have a lot on tail incidence built in as the others are essentially zero.
I flew a 3 minute flight today and put back in 1300 mah so that come out to an average of 26 amps or about 375 watts on the 4S. That is close to what the Wicked 6000 on 3S gets and I expect the 6000 combo on this jet to be about 80-85 mph so I think that is a better setup if you as me.

Lipo all the way forward to make CG.
CG is 30 mm (1 3/16") from wing line.
