Had to add 1.5oz of lead to rear to get neutral inverted, or hands off flight. Will try and lighten up with lighter motor. Want the Sky Lipos 3s 1800, but all out of stock now.
Anyone know of a lighter motor with nearly the same power? As I fly it at low power levels and only zoom up a couple times a flight, need to cut some weight.
At Joe Nall I met a guy that had cut a hole above the wing for his battery. He was using a 120 gram motor and said with 2200's it was way nose heavy. The battery didn't look out of place or anything, it looked pretty good relocated to above the wing.
I picked up a Motrolfly 2815-1100 (123 grams) for my Swift so I was thinking of giving his method a shot.
