Default Diamond Dust

Need CG and and throws for Diamond dust.

Engine: Jett 50 FIRE or Jett 60LX FIRE.

Mini Dust has K&B 3.5 with venturi, I need a real carb so if you have one let me know.

If not I will be forced to install a JETT .30 FIRE BSE. [:@]

The manual says 3/8" for ailerons and 1/4" for elevator to start.
The cg starts at the rear of the front spar and goes forward to about 3/4" in front of the front spar. I found that very much in front of the spar left it nose heavy and fast landings.

C4F, Why would you want to ruin a perfectly good engine with a carburetor?

I balance my dust on the thickest part of the center ribs. I do this by sitting it on a table and it should balance on the thickest part on its own. Forget trying to do the finger tip balance thing, it seems to always fall off.
