Ah, so you're tucking the RX under/into the gussets? That's a clean way to do it. I might do that later, after I see if I can fly one of these. :lol

Yep, exactly. It's just an easier fit, and you don't have to cut out as much foam.

Subject of C/G:

I did not see where Chris J gave a measurement, but the PDF instructions from the EDGE I guess are showing 200mm from leading edge, mine is aprox 225mm from leading edge. Would like to see a number to this, as there will be gear/no gear variants and changes a battery cutout.
I will have a gear on CG measurement in the next day. Still tweaking to my liking. I have moved my battery more forward from the build pics slightly and ites very close.
