Default PHOENIX MODELS F-20 TIGERSHARK CG?

Got one second hand. No manual. Want to fly this weekend.
Can anybody post the CG or a link to the manual?
Thanks

I have a photocopied manual. It says the CG is located 150mm back from the leading edge at the fuselage sides. This is an initial location for test flying with a 10mm margin forward and aft.
