If no one knows use this website. Calculate the position for each wing. Use 30% for the balance point. Place the CG of the plane in the middle of the two CGs. Dan.

Thanks Dan
What is the web site?
The top wing is swept back and the lower is straight.

When you say that you have moved it back and forth, does it mean that you have flown it that way? And what does it do? What do you want to do that it is not doing?

here are a few suggestions for CG Calculators, as suggested, you can do one wing first, then the other one. The actual CG should be between the two.

I got really curious. Why someone that joined in 2014 only have 3 posts, all of them in the last 7 days and all of them asking the same question. Then found this:

What did Bill Hempel tell you?

The reason for getting curious? We are talking about a 50% aircraft after all. People can get hurt really quick.
