Well, you could make your slot a little bigger, and whatever you cut out from that, glue it back in fore or aft from where you cut it out... so essentially, you're just moving the slot forward or back as needed. or you could just stick some velcro on the side of the fuse opposite your rx and esc and that will allow you to move the battery even more. just a thought....


...or you could just hot glue some nickles where you need them to balance it out.

Instead of adding more weight, it would be better to cut more foam out to extend the slot and glue the foam back to fill where you had originally cut, like JForbes suggested.

If you need to move it forward, cut more of the front of the slot and glue the foam you cut out to the back of the slot. It will keep it the same size and move it forward. I have 2 slots cut on mine, 1 for 3s and 1 for 2s, so if you want you can also just cut another slot but i'd just move it forward if i were you.

Lay it on the wing and move it around to see where it balances, then cut, glue, and go fly!

You probably have to balance the prop

Idk if its the prop but ill check. It was running just fine before I lost the prop band that came wit the motor. EDIT- just checked, its balanced perfectly. When I get some prop bands ill check again, the hub is scraped quite a bit from spinning on the motor. I need to use thicker band. Right now its vibrating so bad I can see the whole airframe vibrating in a hover.

They have about the same specs as Hitec 65mg. I wonder how similar they really are. They could save me a bit of cash on my next small build.
