Default RE: CG of a Bipe?

BTW, slightly off topic, but I never miss a chance to toss it out there:

When determining where the CG of a bipe IS (as in, checking to see where it balances) the "Vanessa CG Machine" is, perhaps, the world's greatest invention. I've used it to find the CG of a .25 size trainer, a 33% Pitts Bipe, and even a 44% Extra 260.

if you're unfamiliar, http://home.mindspring.com/~the-plum...%20Machine.htm has the details. I'll be happy as well to share pictures, what-have-you, if anyone wishes to PM.

We now return you to you regular CG Determination thread.
