I am getting very frustrated on this Swift NX. I assumed that a 6S 5000 pack would work in this heli. Apparently, it is going to be seriously nose heavy with these Thunder Power 45C packs that weigh 820gms each. What size pack actually balances this heli?

I know someone flying one that uses a 6S/5000 pack and does not have any balance issues.

Seems it all depends where you put your other items

Will do later, Raven. My canopy is at Callie Graphics, so I need that back for actual balance testing. Everything is up front. CC80HV under the bat, CCBEC under the ESC. Receiver and gyro out back. Both of those are small and light. GY520/bls251, and a R6008HS. I know I need to re-arrange things, but, really no where else for the ESC to go.

Is the 251 on the boom like the old Swift? If so, can you move it back a little to balance the heli correctly?

WOW the 45C is a brick !
My 3850 is only 580G and my standard 5000 is 700G and balances. I have lead on my 3850 to keep the balance the same. so add 100+G and yea I think your going to have a balance problem

That High C rated pack you have is rated for 45x5A = 225 amps contin

The swift on 6S does not pull that kind of amps even with 560 RT on it.
