Ron, did you try trimming the plastic strip on the batteries to see if they would fit better in the frame?

No, I had already "trimmed" the frames a little to accommodate. If I ever have to change the frames (hopefully not) I will do the mod then.......Ron

Hmm probably somewhere in thread, but Ron... What is your all up weight on this machine? It looks very spanky.

But how does it perform? Does it fly light? 12s 5000mAh is a lot of battery.

I fly my home brew version with 12s 5000 hyperion 35C,
With vbar it feels perfect, not too light, nor too heavy.

Over on HF, a poster is having trouble getting his heli to balance with 12S 5000mAh Fightmax packs. Ron, are you having any trouble with balance using the Turnigy packs?

Not at all. Maybe he is not sliding the packs to get the right CG?

He said he actually had to move his RX pack on the other side of the ESC and it still doesn't balance. He said he is considering putting some lead in the tail. Something doesn't seem right with that.

Here is a pic of mine. This is a crude way of checking CG but it was the only way I could do it and take a pic for you. I am slightly nose heavy but well within reason. With the VBAR if you piro and it stays level, then your CG is good, needless to say mine stays level Hope this helps.........Ron
