honestly on my 3d planes i never measure it. for the maiden flight i typically balance the plane somewhere near the spar then from there its all in flight cg testing. Running 6s i literally put the pack right against the spar tube and it requires almost no KE mixing and a very slight push when inverted

What is a good 4s battery for this plane.... I have a 5s 3200 skylipo that seems to work good but thinking I want to try a 4s 4000-4400 but not sure what brand... before I was mostly using 3s 2200 so didn't really care that much about brand or from where. If there are some that come with deans install that would be a plus also.

Gens ace 4000's 25c (from hobbyparz) are what I fly. They are tough to find in stock though. You can sometimes find them in the classifieds. I've heard that glacier packs from epbuddy are good also but have not tried them.

I was looking at Gens ace before posting but they are not in stock. Going to order Trunigy 4s 4000 30c.

For those that have used a Motrofly 3620, what prop best suits the 59.? I was thinking between a 14x7 or 15x7. 4s setup of course.

I've been using the Turnigy brand (3s,4s,5s) for about 3yrs now without a problem,as long as they are 30c plus you'll be right and like nebwake said say away from the nano's!!
I know a lot of people from one of my clubs who have nothing by trouble(it seems tobe every 2nd or 3rd is a dud) but this I particular bloke,he continues to buy them and to me it look's like a lucky dip,but he does get good one's every once in awhile and he does say the proformance is outstanding, but, ....I'll stick with the devil ya know!!

just my 2cents

I've been using a 15x7 with that set up and have been happy.

thinking about getting one, just subscribing to the thread. Anyone out there have both a 59 and 57 for comparison? im trying to decide between the two. found a smoking deal on a 4315 motrolfly, getting it would to 480 for 6s. Want to use the spektrum 5040 servos as well. What prop are people liking on this airframe?
