Just sitting here at work wondering if I should balance my burrito laterally (side to side), I always did this with my pattern planes.

I'm starting to take this fun fly thing a little more seriuosly and would like to trim my plane out a little more. Does lateral CG help to find the sweet spot in hovering? I find when there is no wind, its a little tricky to keep it straight up.

Lateral balance makes ALL the difference in my OMP edge's ability to elevator. If i'ts balanced it comes down solid as a rock. If one side is heavier it will tip to that side every time.

should I have balanced from the front of the fues to the tail or from the prop to the tail?
I think fuse. The prop is actually off to the right side in a profile.

What I do is actually screw an eye hook into the center top of the fuse where I want the cg to be, hang the plane by the hook, then shift things around to get it level. Sometimes I have to add a little lead to the light wing tip.
