Default CG For Carden 35% Edge

Posting for a friend. What CG are you guys using for various types of flying? He's on the verge of 3D but hasn't flown the plane yet. He should be finished building it in a couple of weeks.
What's a good place to start? Thanks_bob

I started out with my CG at 5 1/4 at the wing tips, that took two lbs of lead bolted to the motor to get there. I'm now flying at 6 1/4 CG at the wing tips and quite frankly can't tell the difference other than I'm no longer hauling around two lbs dead weight. AT the 6 1/4 Cg I barely have to input any down to fly level inverted, hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply Ralph. I did think there would be more replies though Are you saying that you are measuring 6 1/4 from the leading edge at the tip? Take care_bob

I just got one from DSP builders, and am interested also. I'm picking it up this weekend so if I get info I'll pass it along to you if you just want stock recommended CG.

Hello Bob
Yes everything was measured at the wing tips. If you need more input try the yahoo groups ( mini-iac ) or ( gsal ). Info from those groups is what caused me to start out at 5 1/4. The best info is straight from the horses mouth ( Dennis ) at Carden ( 433-295-2295 ) Good luck
Ralph
