Default Keecat 61

I have a friend that just got thru building a Keecat and I think his CG is off bad, My question is does anyone out there know where the CG is on this plane and should you do it with the plane turned on it bottom up? The air plane to me is very tail heavy. Thanks Wildman

According to the plans the CG is measured from the trailing edge and not the leading and is 197 - 205 mm. I would think it is bottom down as you would any other plane.

What makes you think it is tail heavy?

Hi wildman
Read the Richmodel Keecat Forum all the details are on there but for the record the CG in the destructions are wrong the correct setting is 9 1/4inch from trailing edge>forward ,next to engine mount............
