Cheers

Hopefully soon I'll have a GoPro to put on it, but to answer your question I balance the quad with the main battery (3S @ 3300) I just slide it as far back as I need to get the balance and since I have a smaller battery powering the FPV gear directly behind the board camera it works out ok for now...

Thanks for the reply. My 4s is pushed forward as far as I can get it and it's still tail heavy

Think I will have to add a weight to the front to add more ballast.

Have someone wiegh the same gopro you intend to use, if the true specs arent online allready, and use some of the adhesive break-off wieghts you can buy, setting it up in advance to be ready for the go pro will save you re-doing it later on

Oh yeah, it's designed for a gopro up front. Another option is to install HT-450 landing gear, and mount the battery on the bottom, under the center plate. This way it should balance with no camera. Another option, I could make you a plate to mount the battery on top... a protector plate with some slots in it.

Thanks for the reply.

I did install heli landing gear with the intention of mounting my battery below but I felt it detracted somewhat from your deign, which is what drew me to the HT-FPV in the first instance.

A top plate which enables the battery to be placed further forward is a great idea for people wanting to fly the quad without a Gopro.

As this is only a temporary fix for me until I get the Gopro I have decided to add ballast up front for the time being. I managed to scrounge some square washer plates which I will zip tie underneath the front plate.

When I was running this frame with a 4 cell I had to cut the top plate to get the battery father forward.

Ps, this frame is for sale. Pm me if interested. Spares included.

Hi Guys, what do you recommend or have experience with the best prop and battery combo for Tiger 900kv motors. Would love to know some details of other setups using these motors. Trying to get the best flight times as what I am getting right now is only around 6min

Description: . I'm not sure if i should go with 4 cell or not. Maybe a bigger ma lipo like you might help. I just bought these darn motors at 35 apiece ......and I don't think they will take 4 cell.
