Any help is always appreciated.
Craig, no access for the fan on my last one, (built one before this one and had a removable wing).. Mount the fan more rearward if you can, I have my battery pushed all the way back into the "V" and it is still nose heavy, but flies pretty good. Yes I did do sme duct work, I'd have to go back to the thread to see how much,, just keep everything out of the airflow, keep it sealed up, and make smooth transitions. Also if you look at the intakes on mine they are cut say down from the stock size which was toooooo big.. Tried to keep at around 100% FSA on the intakes and 85% FSA on the exhaust.. Hope this helps.
