Regardless of style of flying, you still need to balance the heli.
Understand that the EB stands for "Extended Boom". Where the heli balanced perfectly in it's standard form, we now have extended the boom and added the heavy duty gearbox.
So that means it needs nose weight added to balance the heli on the main shaft.
Also realize that this isn't like a Raptor, where every ounce counts. This thing can carry some weight with those big blades. The added nose weight makes very little difference as far as performance is concerned.
