Also as far as CG is 77mm from the leading edge what you all use or the 70mm that the manual says? Seems at 77mm on my fingertips I almost have to get the battery out of its hole to balance. I'm probably gonna rig up something tonight to balance it properly without my fingers. Also the CG should be checked with the prop folded in right?
To get from 70 to 77 you should have to move the battery back, not forward. Not sure how you are measuring this, but 77mm is about where the servo wires come out of the wings.
