I'm about to start building my third X8 tomorrow (crashed due to a horrible gust on launch at 6.6kg all up). I notice a lot of peeps are managing to put the batteries in the middle of the fuselage. Just wondering how people have managed to balance this for CoG? For my setup (albeit with a meaty 1.8kW potor & 16x10 prop) I have to have 2x 7s LiPos as far forward as possible to just get the CoG correct.
Just interested if there is anything obvious I am overlooking? I want to keep the pitch inertia low by having everything heavy near the CoG if possible.
All ideas welcome!
