Well...The motor is the Hacker A60-5XS, running a Xoar 18X10, with my home made aluminum mount, which took about 1.75OZ of lead in the tail to balance, even with the rudder servo in the tail.... The back end of the battery (Thunder power 6S 65C 5000mAH pack) is right under the cross member in the fuselage. That said, it is definitely a bit tail heavy, as when I roll inverted it climbs, so, I am going to remove at least 3/40z of lead from the tail, and probably even more when I get my laser cut motor mount I am having cut by National Balsa...

As to throws...I still had my 68" Velox setup in my radio, so all I had to do was bind a new receiver, and I was good to go. I did put a bit more elevator on the low rates, and I think I have tweaked all of the throws to the "TLAR" (that looks about right) standard....

I'm sorry I can't be any more specific, but I just haven't measured anything since the initial set up, which as noted was/is tail heavy..
