My Comp Arf was balanced on the front edge of the wing tube as recommended in the manual. Pretty easy to do as the kit came with a balance jig. I've moved stuff around over the last 4 seasons and have no idea where the measured balance point is now but plane still flies great so I guess all is well. The manual does say you can move balance point 10-15 mm forward of wing tube if you like a more nose heavy feel.

FYI front of the wing tube is way to nose heavy 86mm to 91 mm in front of the main axle should be ideal

Greg Alderman (PULSE BATTERIES Helidirect), used Frank Noll to get this one dialed in, Since Frank has a few Viperjets under his belt these two may be worth a call........
