BTW I did find the tail heavy spot on my 70 yesterday. The 8s 2x3600 40c turnigys weigh in at 29oz. I bought these 3 hyperion 2600 from an addict and they are a lot lighter. 9oz to be exact. I move the battery up a bit but wanted to keep it under 2 straps. Well after take off I had about 4-5 clicks of down trim to deal with. Hovered a little easier with maybe the lighter plane and probably more because of the cg. It flew fine but the landing was interesting. Had to come in a little faster to keep the tail up!

I may check it on the sticks to see where i was.

Also this was a maiden after the motor box replacement. No trimming needed with the regular battery packs.

In the pic you can see the normal placement of the heaver setup.
