I set the CG meter up at 110 mm from LE and only had to cut out small amt [1/2" ]
forward of my already cut out section on the top fuse and it balance right on the spot with a nano T 2200 battery

Front of battery is 5 3/4 " back from the very front of the foam

So think it is now close enuff and I can move on :-)

I think you will find 110mm too far forward, but its a good starting point.

I hang all of my foam. It does help to keep them staright and true and makes more room for more planes. I have found that more planes is a good thing

Installed my Turnigy D3536/8 1000KV - but on 11x7 I get at least 32A in a 25c battery, and obviously more on a 45c. That motor is rated for 30A max.

Thinking I might prop down to 11x5.5

Eventually, I'm going to swap it out for my Dualsky 3536 EA-7, 990KV, which has a 34A max amp rating. That motor I've tested on 12x6 and it got to 34A, so would be a better option, maybe running 12x3.8SF?

Has anyone tried a 72g Omega on this? A 40A motor with plenty of power. Might be interesting (assuming CG is ok)

Well, not to be defeated, I bolted up my Omega 72g to this frame. I measured 421watts at 36 Amps using 45c 2200 Nanotech on APC 11x7 WOT on a fresh charge. I don't think that will let me down. That motor could go to a 12" I would expect and keep under 40A

I am thinking of standardising on Omegas on my Telinks and larger foamies. The 72, 105 and 130g is a nice range, and a fairly realistic price, with decent amp ratings per weight, and lots of watts. They look very well built also.

The only issue on this size frame is that this motor is 1100kv, rather than 890ish of the 130g Omega. Wonder if this will be an issue

I always wondered how you hung them. What do you use around the prop to hang them? That is a very neat system.

Good idea. Mine works just fine, and I can adjust the cg if I want. I find nothing bad while flying with the pack on the side velcroed.
