Default 600N balance

I've always assumed this, but is balancing done with tank empty or full?

Secondly, with the tank not directly under the shaft, CG changes as it empties correct?

Split the difference, do it 1/2 full, that will give you the average.

Yes, rear mounted tanks get nose heavy as the fuel burns off.

Are there helis with mid mounted tanks?

Also, do you use a header tank on you 600?

There's probably a few but that causes other problems.

Yes I put a header tank on my 600n.
