OK. Thanks. I just wanted to make sure the CG specified in the manual is in fact the right CG. Are you guys finding 200-212mm to be correct?

If it is, I think I'll stick with the 1300 and add some weight. I was thinking about adding a slug in the nose skid.

I tried a 2200 nanotech I had sitting around and that was too heavy. Plus, the compartment is not wide enough for the 2200 I have. If I make it wider, looks like I might punch through the leading edge.
