You guys are wasting your money. Just buy the servo operated fuse extender. It increases or shortens the length of your tailboom with the turn of a dial on your Tx. You get a CG shift as a side result, so it's like getting a Tx operated variable CG for free!!!

Haha, for some reason the "go Joe" part of that last line reminded me of the chant from the old "GI Joe" cartoons my little brother used to watch

It's sweet that vid is going viral!

Battery stays the same weight the whole time, if you really want a CG adjuster you would move a gas tank forward or back as it empties :-)

But Steve does not like gas. And he wants to use it to tweak in Flight his CG.

Kinda figured you would have it built in a couple hours. You had a seriously big grin on your face when you left.
