Lx/banana hobby twin 70mm f-22 setup? CG?
Hi guys, I've had my f22 for a while now and I still havnt worked up the courage to take it for a maiden! The reason for this is confusion about correct cg. The reccomended battery is 6s 3600 mah, but I couldn't see a 3600 lasting very long at all and I already have 4000 and 4500 nano-tech packs.. So I set my cg according to the manual, and had to add a fair amount of weight to the back. To compensate for the larger pack.
I have since read on forums that people are using 4000-5000mah packs but no mention of adding weight.
I have also cut out foam to push the pack as far back as possible.
My questions are:
Do I take the weight out and put my packs back in the normal position and hope for the best? (nose heavy)
Do I keep my jet the way I have set it up as per the manual reccomended cg? (Balances on cg)
What cg have people used, if any different to standard?
Throws on elevators?
To use thrust vector or not to use it?
I can't find much negative info on flight characteristics, so if you have anything negative, please speak up so I know what to expect! Thanks in advance

You might want to read through this thread first: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...298826&page=97 It has lots of good info on the airplane. Although I can't answer your questions (I don't own one) the guys there should be able to help.
