Default Direct Connection F-20

I've just bought a second hand D/C F-20 with an OS 46FX & pipe but without instructions.

Does anybody know where the c.g. should be and what the control throws are?

Thanks in advance

Paul

Default The balance point is....

....5-3/4 " back from the leading edge where the wing
meets the fuse. (up-side down, on the balancer)

The throws are ....
Ailerons....3/16-1/4 up, same down.
Elevator....1/4-3/8 up, same down.
Rudder....3/4-1", each way.

Dave.
