Balance point is in the area of the launch grip area. Specified CG is way to far back. This thing needs very little elevator. On my DX7 Elevator is set at 15% and it is still way more than needed.
The battery goes right where you say and mine flies perfectly with no issues at all. Low rates at 50% and 50% expo and its perfect.
