You might also consider the Turnigy Reaktor 300W charger. It's exactly the same charger as the 206b (even uses the same manual) but cheaper.

Hard to say what the problem is withoutseeing it in action but if it flies ok most of the time it's probably not CG related, plus if it balances as per manual it should be ok. As hinted at above,...

So 'stretch' in heli terms is putting on a longer tail boom so you can fit bigger rotor blades without then hitting the tail blades (blades hitting is very bad!).

+1

For your small batteries that's all that's really required. A cinder block bunker is also fine of course but vast overkill IMHO. They are toy airplane batteries, not unexploded bombs;)
