Use the 25% of mac measured near the fuse as a starting point . REmember this is best for a constant cord wing , its more complicated with a tapered wing , but I have used this simple method and its always works

You could always do a search, like I just did to find out.

Granted that their models dont have the best instructions (read crap) but they are cheap.
I have many models from Nitro and they all took a bit more time and effort to put together but all of them have been great flyers.

Good luck

A C.G. is after all just a "suggestion".

The "joke" is that people often view the C.G. as something hard and fast.

25% MAC is pretty safe for YAKS and I've flown them with the C.G. set to 35% for 3D.
