Default 1st Patriot 40

Alright after having so many problems trying to figure out my engine problems and choices i have one final problem. Since i got this Patriot already finished and flown i had only a few things to do, that i wanted to do which was give the engine a bath, change all the old Airtronics stuff out for my Futaba 3151's and Futaba radio gear, which resulted in me having to change all the pull-pull wires and crimps, and finally try to get ride of all the huge unnecessary chunks of weight which seemed to be counter-acting each other anyways! So i got all that done except the pull-pull stuff i'll be finishing this week, sooo... i don't have the instructions or plans to know the location of the Center of Gravity and so there for that is the problem i need solving.

For those who like to skip be the huge paragraph i need the CG on a Patriot40!!

For those who like pictures i try to get some up within the week!
