I don't remember, but start with at least 2:1 aileron differential, and add some rudder to taste. The slower the plane is flying, the more rudder/aileron mix you will need if the aileron diff is correct for fast flying speeds.

A little snapflap is a good thing, also.

Brett-

You'll notice that I opted to make a new tray on the Capp I built with a differing layout, all the heaviest items forward :

Battery- 6.5 oz
mid-sized elevator servo- 1-3/4oz?
rudder servo 3/4 oz
Reciever- 3/4-1oz (OK, you got me there!)

I see that I stated that 4oz was put in the nose, and the battery is 6.5. And, there was a 1/2oz trim weight on the aft end of the battery; so I'm right there at 11 oz, and it's a single carbon plane....

It flys great as is.

I really like the Sub C batteries for these style noses, 2200 REAL MaH, and they can be fast charged. And, you need the weight up front. If it wasn't for the 3150 flap servo's, I would have been using a FIVE cell Sub C, weighing in at 8oz!

PS. How did you fit the balance lead? Is it shot glued in, or molton lead poured in?
Lately in tight squeezes, I've been pouring in 2oz of molton lead at a time in the nose, which is in a bucket of cool water. It saves quite a bit of space when you need it, and doesn't melt the nose if you do it a little at a time properly cooled.
