? about c of G On Micro's. I recently purchased a Blade CP Pro 2. I have had to add 3/4 oz. of lead to the front tip of the canopy to get the thing to balance. I also bought a Honeybee King 2 and to get it to tilt forward on the flybar I have rubberbanded the CP battery to the honeybee battery. Is all this normal? Is there a better way to get these heli's balanced? They are hard enough to fly as first Heli's but the aft c of g makes it immossible, I am concerned with this much weight they won't 3D well.

Yes I do have the batteries as far forward as possible in the frames.

Dead weight is never good. Move around your electronics. Shifting around or choosing the right battery has the most impact IMO when your having tail heavy issues. On the other hand, boom mounted tail servo is the easiest way to keep your CG in check if your nose heavy. You'll have to just mess with it until you get it right. It can be time consuming and a pain in the Arse.. but you will only have to do it once, for the most part.

The blade CP Pro has a known problem with it's CG. Build a battery extension tray and move your battery forward.
