Guys,
I need your help again ...

Finally I putted all pieces together - 2 additional reinforcement given - new nose made and glued.
It looks ... like ZII after huge crash but still looks like ZII ...

This time I decide to start from a diet ... all FPV gear - out, F-31 - out, cameras - out ...
Target - have it lightweight and start learning how to launch !

BUT:
I do have an issue with CG !
I marked 3.5 inch from motor bay - 2 servos on board, 2 batteries 4S 3300 on board, Rx ...
and it is balanced - perfect CG !
OK - but if I add a ESC, I'm out of CG right away ... what about motor and prop ?
If I add them both - is butt heavy as hell !

Second issue is I can't swap motor shaft to mount it inside the bay - only outside ...

What can I do - how should I move all this things around to keep it balanced ?

Any ideas - photos ?

Thanks guys !

Alex
