Default PATRIOT XL CG PLEASE!

Just bought the XL with the BSE Jett .90 and ready for the maiden flight!
All I need to know is where the CG should be.
I don't have a manual to reference so I'm calling on the Brotherhood for some undivided truth!
Anyone know exactly? Anyone?[sm=idea.gif]

The CG is the spot where you BALANCE the airplane- What-r-u stupid?

I just put the rx batt and rx nea the back behind the wing, and move my fingers fore or aft until it balances...

So you are all-set

....Razor is correct....

....if you move your fingers back and forth, the plane will balance at some point,
and that is a good thing.....don't worry....be happy....[sm=bananahead.gif]

FBD.

No need to admit myself to any "State Hospital"!
I am already a member "Room #118"!
Drop on by later and we can "Share an I.V. Push of Morphine" then we will go fly"![:-]
Razor and Dave and KMOT and Vicman and Crasharama and Budedude and The Math Teacher (plus many others) always drop by for a little pick me up before a day of "flying fast planes while sittin' still"!
Halucinations are free![sm=tongue_smile.gif][sm=tongue_smile.gif][sm=tongue_smile.gif][sm=thumbup.gif]
Razor even tried to run some morphine in his plane to see if it would go faster! (he kills me!)
I love you guys!
Please take a step back from the screen!
Dave even looks younger after an "I.V. Push"[sm=48_48.gif]
Alrighty then! I'm spent and I'm going to go and balance my HOTROD!

P.S. YOU DON'T WANT TO BE AROUND WHEN RAZOR COMES BACK DOWN OFF OF THE DRIP![sm=bananahead.gif]

WOW, that illustration reminds me of what I was doing roughly two weeks ago. Damn kidney stones--- Got me good this time! 20 cc Morphine had no effect on the pain-

I should asked them to add some Castor to my IV- FBD would have!

P.S. Dr. Speed- It IS too hot dude! I know you and Wayne can take cat-naps in his AC equipped motorcoach, but the rest of us would melt

Kidney stones! [:@]

I know all about em' Razor. Had em' when I was in my mid 20's. They didn't have any technology back then. Just had to suffer. Tell me if it felt like this:

1) You have been hit in the back by a baseball bat swung by Babe Ruth.

2) Your weiner feels like it is on fire.

3) Your cajones are being squeezed by a 30 ton press.

ALL AT THE SAME TIME!

That's what it felt like to me. [sm=cry_smile.gif]
