Updates since I bought a better $12 scale (thanks for the prompting Tom; was good to take a driving break coming up from Wilson).

Also, I measured several other models at ECHLGF and my pod has the same general nose length as all the others at 9.75". However, I don't get my servos as far forward as some of them. From LE to nose (approx): Polaris is 9.25", Fr3ak is 9.75", Stobel is 9.375", and Akcent-2 is 9.75".

Conclusion is that my tails need to be on the order of 13g total or less, servos should be put as far forward as possible (lengthen my hatch perhaps), and my boom layup will be changed to better match what I find others are doing.

Thanks for your help everyone,
Dan
