    When you're adding your battery, do you always move it slightly to find the centre of gravity? What's the best method to do that. Literally just hold with your fingers?

    if i add a Gopro to the front, should i be moving the battery again to re-do the centre of gravity, seeing how the added Gopro has added weight to the front?

    What does everyone use?

    Yes you must adjust battery every time you fly. There are finger hold point on most Racing drones. Use them.

    Yes, You will need to balance due to Gopro. Battery will need to be as far back as possible I suspect. I think it will also perform very badly.

    Cheers

    So on the F210, there's 2 little "tabs" about halfway on the body. That's the centre line I need to balance on? I can't see anything else marked on it...
