    Same comment than Ali, my preferred CG was 6S 4400mA and receiver pack on the side of LG, there was also a tow release servo in the model but not lead.
    So.....where was “your” CG? 60-85mm is what the man well shows......where you closer to 60 or 85??? 25mm is a big range.....

    • I had a thought on the CG question. As it was troubling me....
      Did you have a pilot figure, Cockpit tub and canopy in place when measuring the C of G? I cannot for the life of me see a reason to add that much weight in the nose of the electric set up? I can understand some difference in component weights during production. But not 14Oz of nose weights worth...

      • So no cockpit tub, tow release servo or pilot figure. With both 4000Mah receiver packs right behind the motor, 119 grams of lead upfront on shelf and a 6S 6000 my CG is right at the 85mm mark. I'll add a bit more lead tomorrow when it arrives to try and get it a little more nose heavy versus tail heavy. Sorry, I was off on my original post.

          Ok. That is making more sense. No Cockpit tub and Pilot? But you had the canopy on? Correct?

          I would not advise going further forward than 85mm. I did a lot of testing and found that the plane handles so much nicer when it is not nose heavy. Nearly all of the "try me" flights that Stephane and I did were with the smaller/ lighter packs, 6s 2900-3500mah so were close to the rearward balance point. Not one person said that it felt tail heavy in flight. When I used anything above 4000Mah 6S packs. I tended to leave the pilot out in order to achieve a better feel.

          • Ali, check my last entry on the other build thread. It's about my landing gear not retracting. Any suggestions? It will need to get replaced from what I can tell. I have a few videos I took of the problem is someone would like to see them.

            • Sorry to hear about the retract issues. I have not had any on the three samples, other than one time where I landed off field and cycled the gear switch while the model was on the ground. This damaged a gearbox and required me to replace the motor.
              I hope our product support team can get you what you need in order to fly your ASH?
              Regards Ali
