Hey, good question. you need to find the COG or center of gravity when the drone is complete. First, tight the locks up according of what you see in the pictures, then when the drone is finished, put on the battery and everything that make it be heavier, affix with a knot a large piece of thin cable in the middle of the drone about the wall that divides the space of the battery and the lifting mechanism, hang the drone from your ceiling, a tree or a ladder and make sure that it stays in a perfect horizontal position. If not, move the locks and the "T" arm-leg supports until the drone is perfectly horizontal. You can do it after or before drilling and wiring, but drill the carbon tube horizontally so the wires have room to move back or to the front when you adjust the center of gravity.
I strongly recommend you to print and use the position Locks that have the bolts and screws externally so you don't have to drill on the carbon tube directly.
