Default Midwest Aero sport 60

I just made major repairs to a Miwest aero-sport 60 that was kit built, but, I dont know the proper CG, I was told at the spar, but that would be about 2" from the LE, and on a 13" chord, that just dosent sound right. This thing is very light in the tail, but Im running a Super tiger 90 on it. any Help?????

Actually, it's 2 inches behind the spar. Great plane! On my second one!

I'm helping a friend clear out his attic (he's moving to Tennessee). He has one of these NIB if anyone is interested.

I have built 2 Midwest Aerostar .40 kits. Both needed to be balanced on the forward edge of the wing spar. Iv'e never seen the .60 though. It does seem strange that the balance point is way forward but believe me, you do not want a tail heavy plane. Try it on the wing spar, better nose heavy than tail heavy.
