Will a 4400mAh 6S pack balance the longer tailboom of a 550 SE okay? Or does it need a 5000mAh 6S pack to get the CG correct with the 550 canopy? Thanks.

Bad News:
The pack will literally hang half way out to have correct CG

Good News:
Heli will fly just fine now and once you get the correct pack, heli will fly even better.

sometimes the canopy gets some cracks in it from the lipo touching it! I haven't found a way to protect it.

Think u better off using some kinda weight measurement vs cap of batt as every batt is different. I have a 5003d using longer boom swinging 550s I use a pulse 4100 45 c n I also have a 4500 45c that balance well. Sum thing tells me 350ish grams I think my hk zippys 5000 won't fit under my counter bearing support plus it's real heavy n need to be slid way back on the tray where my pulse are right at the front of the tray. I would use a weight n look from there to see what best suits ur needs

Okay, thanks everyone for the input. I guess I will have to finish the build before buying packs.

Or start with a 4500 pack n go from there maybe add some weight to balance out or go by dimensions n weight. If you using 6s there is plenty of room to slide around but. Get others wights for better spec
