How much weight have you had to add to the nose of your Sceadu 30?
And what did you use for weight and where and how did you add it?
Thanks

Jerry

I wanted to keep the battery in the tray so I had to add
100 grammes of weight to the front on my Sceadu 30.
I have a 1300maH NiCad. I used Great Planes stick
on weights which fit nicely underneath the front tray.

Balancing the Sceadu
Just wondering what is the best technique to balancing the Sceadu? I have heard of people holding the heli up on the tips of their fingers by the flybar to see if the heli is balanced or not. Is this the best practice?

Did not add any to mine, though I have got a 2500mah battery in the front.

Charge it up every few months.

To balance:

Grab the head, place your finger under the upper skid (head is towards you) and see which way she tips (finger must be in alignment with main mast to give a pivoting point.

Hirobo Skiddys might be tail heavy with fuel. A Sceadu 50 I know of is.
