Default PATRIOT 40 CG

WELL I SET ASIDE MY PATRIOT PROJECT FOR A FEW MONTHS SO I BROKE IT OUT LAST NIGHT AND I BET THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED TO ANYONE ELSE, BUT, WELL I LOST MY MANUEL.

CAN SOMEONE BAIL ME OUT BY SENDING THE RECOMMENDED CG?

GREATPLANES SAYS 8 1/2" IS THIS CORRECT?


THANKS
MIKE

thanks Vicman,

for some reason 7 1/2" was stuck in my head, so when I read greatplanes tech bulletin 8 1/2" seemed to much. Have you moved the cg for or aft or are you at the recommended setting
