I ran into a little problem with COG. If I use the 3300mah I need to add about 120g in lead weight to balance it out. But with 4000mah it balance good. The Z2 is so heavy? 3071g with the 8000mah.

7.25in from the opening, but that might not be the most accurate way to measure as the mount was cut back a little from stock. The hook itself is 3.75in in front of the CoG.

On 4S I assume. I get 40A with with same motor on 10x6 with 3S. Sounds about right, though the 110A ESC should not be hot after a normal run... my 60A one comes back cool.

Hey lads,

I have an order about to leave HC - Anyone know if these are any good for the Z2?

I can't get the Hitechs locally without paying near on $60 each.
