I found some time and space to test the bird.
It hovers nicely, but only with Horizon mode in iNav as i found i have COG problem depending the batteries used.
With a 115mm long 3S 2600mah there was serious forward leaning in ACRO mode and i couldn't get it off the ground at all.
Enabling the Horizon mode though it hovered like a charm.
I also tested with 2 x 1000mah 3S Nanotechs connected in parallel that were placed in the back of the battery space.
The COG problem was very light, almost gone.
Again with Horizon mode was perfect.

I couldn't keep it in the air more than 5 minutes cause all the batteries are very old and do not keep much juice.
Actually i had them stored in my refrigerator for around 5 years !!!
They survived but they cannot hold anymore in such demanding usage.

I wait for a couple new 3S 3000mah batteries.
With the changes i have done to the body they will fit if the declared sizes are correct but i have to solve the COG problem somehow.

For now the total weight with the 2600mah battery is 850 grams
