why not cut them in the wings if that is what you want to do? it's not gonna be a problem. having them in the center is not going to "stiffen" the wing at all.

Thanks for the advice! I think I will add a Box for the bay and see if I can make that work but if not I'll throw the batteries into the wings. I'll post pictures when I'm done

Got a few questions maybe someone can answer. I plan to use the Exuhf diversity rx and i see alot of people mounting them in the wing, Is it best to speratate the two antennas. Meaning mounting one further down the wing and the other on the rx or mounting them together.
Ive also seen the vtx out on the wing and plan on doing that for sure.
Also the TBS battery box will it fit the 4s 3300 nanotech batteries? Im thinking of getting that too.
The gear i plan on installing is 600mw Vtx, Ezuhf rx, TBS Ezosd and flitecam and gopro. Trying to plan ahead for everthing. so any help would be appreciated.
Oh and twisted vs straight servo wire? which could be better?

I have my EZUHF antenna in a V, I think this is pretty standard.

Yes mount the Vtx on the other wing if you can, I recommend the TBS tuned Lawmate equipment for video, it stomps!

I'm pretty sure the bat box will fit 3300s 4s nanos but you may want to just confirm with someone else.

Cheers, Carl.

How do you all get the elevons level? It seems every time I take my Zephyr out it banks strongly either to the left or right depending on how I adjusted the Elevons.

adjust the trim on your radio?
I believe the method I saw posted was to lay a ruler across the top of the wing and make the elevons flush up to the ruler. Then adjust the trim on the radio once you are in the air to get it tracking smooth. It should be really close after using the ruler method though. If you have good servos, and good servo linkages it should stay flying nicely after that...

That's the technique I was looking for. Thanks!

if you set it up with the ruler or cell phone and it doesn't track the roll perfectly straight,,,, it's not straight where you glued it together. The less tuning it takes right there to keep it from rolling the better it's gonna fly with less wag.it would or should have a slow roll nose down set straight with cg perfectly set, it should have just the slightest up from flat, a couple degrees

Another question for you guys.
For the prop is is better to go with foldable or just regular, I see alot of mixed stuff, Ive always run just a standard prop, so whats ya'lls take on the two?

Just use a regular prop. Prefer APC E props, they're cheap and work well, and are thin so they will break on a bad landing, instead of damaging your motor/shaft/mount. Folding props are just unnecessary and expensive.
