Explorer Q ballast

Al Morgan

Recommended Posts

Just started flying my new Explorer Q F5J, its quite a thing. I need to set up the ballast, the tubes according to my Vernier are 18.5mm or slightly less than 3/4 inch. I presume its a case of making up brass slugs? Is that the best way?

Hello Al,

              Yes I made up brass slugs with wooden dowel spacers. Be careful though as the ballast tubes in the wings are in front of the CG. I was unable to move lipo etc. in order to get CG in the right position.
