Wait 'till you get to 3D CP flying. Some of the guys doing that are in my estimation - super human.
I'm sure you've seen this type of flying but here's an example anyway - http://www.santiye.tv/play/ib2R1v1I5..._AMA_Expo.html
Thats freakin awesome!!.. yes.. I don't know how these guys are wired to do that.. no clue.. Probably alot like Jimmy Page is wired for the guitar.. it just makes sense to them. Very cool stuff. Thanks.

not enough to worry about, you might need a click of trim, but probably not.

4.5g? 6.5g? Are we missing 10g here, or am I in the wrong thread again?

yeah, I think mine was actually 13 and change... those other numbers can't be right for 120sr batteries.

4g would be a pretty average weight for a 120mAh battery, NOT however for a 120SR battery

That's what I thought, and I do the same thing with my 120SR, flying it with 500, 550, & 600. But I like Mike's explanation the best.
