83.6mm is what the manual states. I've never seen any nose weights on mine, just the wing tip weights which are close to the ideal CG. The nose ballast must come with the flapless 3S version?

Yes, it is only mounted in 3s. to compensate for the smaller acc I guess. But 130gram extra iron just up front! And actually that did put the CG really too far forward. Removed and you hit 83mm!
But I wonder where 83.6mm comes from. Well I mean the .6mm! I would like to see anybody measuring the CG that accurate!
Anyway, that doesent matter. She is very unsesetive to CG. If you test -100mm You have to fly more active. And if you stall here you maybe need to turn on the motor to pull here into stable flight state. But she will be sensetive to you finger tips! With -60mm she will be very unsensetive to everything and forgivable. Just give her som up-click and fly!

seen two different videos today of stock prop breaking and tearing the motor out ! One guy said this the second time the stock prop has broken ,,, I do not want this to happen,so what prop should i order that is stronger than stock ? dont need anything bigger just same size but stronger . Just noticed these are what is on the used diamond i bought, way more solid than stock i think. So soon as i find them in usa ill get a few extras. http://www.hacker-motor-shop.com/e-v...&c=1909&p=1909 only difference i can see is at the widest part stock is 1 1/4" wide and these are 1" wide. But new ones are also carbon fiber. got two new sets on the way

im not sure what that is . you mean when gliding and turning one wing drops ? If so use more rudder in the turn and a bit of opposite aileron .
