Another observation, tris like the weight to be more on the front motors because you get a drop in lift efficiency with a tilting rotor in the rear. So I find my tris are balanced better and fly better with a slightly forward cg of dead center to the 3 motors. I can't confirm that scientifically. Just an observation. In my talon tricopter the controller is further forward of the center of the 3 motors and it works well when the cg is on the flight controller than over the dead center of the 3 motors.
