Finally putting this thing together. What's a good starting point for the CG? I was thinking the wing tube was what I read a while back.

good to see someone putting one of these together. I have one that is in my project que but has not gotten to the top of the list yet. Center of wing tube is a good starting point if you have some experience. you may want to move it back a little after a few flights if you want more high alpha/3D ability. please keep me posted on this thread. thanks.

ZDZ Super 80. Used one that I picked up a while back. Still have a brand new one sitting in the box. JMB Pitts muffler. Wanting more of an aft CG. Plan on doing tail touches with some smoke.
