    Gentlemen modelers, which version of the battery assembly will be the best for CG around 85-90mm? Batteries placed one above the other or one behind the other (necessary to disassemble the electronics board and install in other place).
    Guess it really doesn't matter, as long as you can get the CG that works for you. I personally prefer one in front of the other, distributes the weight more evenly, but then that requires you to unscrew the electronics board and then just use some velcro with one sticky side on the bottom of the board and on the place in the fuselage you put it, no biggy (and you can always remove it any time if you need to work on something). Although with one on top of the other, you'll also need to change the velcro straps to longer ones and use 2 (I used 2 on each even when locating them front to back). As long as you get them strapped down tight with no movement possible, it should be fine. I do think it's easier to keep them down tight with one in front of the other.

    • Hey guys, its been a few years since we last got a gaggle of six FW 80mm A10's all flying together at Terry Nitche's E-Jets event near Columbus Ohio at the TORKS club. I'd really like to see this happen again. Pete and I are coming, how about you Jetman? And there are several others from this group. Good deal at the local hotel. Its 6 weeks away, Sept 8-11. 900' paved runway! Here is a link to the event flyer: E-JETS-E-WARBIRDS-2022.pdf (torks.com) BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRT!

            • Thanks again for everyone's input. Box arrived majorly delayed, but nothing damaged. Going to use airbrush for a custom paint scheme (either Alaska or 100th Anniversary). As I was inspecting the parts I thought about painting the plane unassembled? Would that work or actually cause consistency issues of sorts?
