I knocked the nose off my 40 Shirke, took everything out to repair, now I'm putting the radio back in I've found I've forgotten where the CG should be. Anyone know?

Oddly enough I was looking up that info for a friend last night. According to the plans the c of g is 1 1/4 inches back from the rear of F3 or the front of the main spar.

But remember if your Shrike .40 is like mine and most others. it is very nose heavy with everything where it should be. I put the battery and receiver in the rear and still heavy but flys great.
