Hi to all
I'm flying a Stratus (8.18)
and I noticed that in mine and all my fieldfriends
Stratus, the center of gravity is very taily (sorry for the language, but I mean that the tail goes quicly down)
How can we balance this CG in that models?
Please all your suggestions will be very appreciated
Thank you very much
Regards
G

than you mean that the only
thing for you to make it balanced is
to lacate tha battery almost outside tha battery tray
For me I have Duralite li-ion 4000
but only with this weight
there is nothing to do

CG
If you are careful about keeping the tail light and move all the radio gear as far forward as you can, the model balances empty of fuel. I put about 2 ounces of lead under the from battery tongue to make sure.

your stratus should be balanced with out fuel, sounds like you have it the sam as I have mine. mine is balance with out fuel, never checked with fuel. but hovers and fff is great with no pitchiness (pun )
