Default Balancing a GWS Slow Stick?

I'm new to RC flying and the electric forum. I'm searching for information on balancing the GWS Slow Stick and I may not be asking the right search questions. What is the best way to do a static balance of a Slow Stick prior casting its fate to the wind?

For the Slow Stick, just balance it on the tips of your index fingers. You'll find the CG within 1/8" or so, unless you have really fat fingers You don't need to be perfectly precise.

a couple of wine bottles the same size with the cork poking out and cut in an inverted V does the trick, if your asking where the gc should be, about 25% of MAC
