Default Smith Mini Plane CG Location

Hi, this is my first post since joining this forum. Can someone please post the CG of the Sig, Smith Mini Plane? I am replacing an OS.40 with an Saito FA-50 and have long ago tossed the plans.

Thanks

Dave

Use the rear nylon bolts that hold the top wing on. Center of the bolts is your CG point.

Mkoe, if you have the plans can you post the control surface movements i.e. elevator up 1/2' down 1/2"

Thanks
