Default Lanier Predator CG

Hi all

I have a used Lanier Predator. I have checked her out good and she is ready for her first flight. I have an OS 46 with a long tune pipe and an APC 8.75x8.75 prop. I do not have the CG point for her. I have looked every where and can not find it. Lanier wants $ for a book, but I only need the CG point. Any help is very grateful.

Anywhere between 2 1/2" and 2 3/4" from the le will be fine for the test flight.

Thanks daven

Will the predator come in like the Viper when landing?

Very similar, all Quickees land softly after they bleed off speed. Especially the hing wings.
