What is the optimum battery weight for the Protos?
I'm looking at some Zippy/Turnigy batteries that are in the 2200 -5000Mah range & they weigh anywhere from 452grams up to 675grams.
I'm new to the Protos so I was wondering what the best weight is to get a good balance as I may go flybarless later.
Thanks

I run the Hyperion VX 2600 packs and they weigh 404g. They ride a little low in the battery tray, so a slightly heavier pack wouldn't hurt too much ... say 450g maybe? I don't think you could get 500g to balance out well but that is just a guess.

Besides weight of the battery, the dimension is very important as well. Packs like Hyperion VX 6S-2600 is short and fat which allows more adjustment up and down the tray to get the CG right. Longer packs does not allow this flexibility, anything over 410g and long you may need to move component or add weight to the tail to get it balance. If you run a full size tail servo, this will not have as much effect.

My flybarless protos runs with a 5s 3700 mah pack that weighs about 480g. With a full size tail servo the balance is spot on.
