    Center of Gravity. Does anyone check their P2 fully loaded. In order for a aircraft to fly properly, It should have a known and balanced Center of Gravity. I haven't seen any discussion on this topic here. Since there are a number of different locations we have been mounting Iosd's, VTX, Data Links, etc.. COG should be a factor of flight performance.

    I flew yesterday and put it in a hover in front of me. It hangs low on the Right when facing away from me. I noticed this ever since i took my iosd mini and can bus plug from the bottom of the P2 and moved it inside the P2. The only thing hanging off the bottom of the Phantom is my Gimbal and VTX. I am going to try to see if it is unbalanced and where the COG should be.
