    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
    If you have to bend over more than once to pick it up - it was a bad landing

    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.

    There is an art . . . to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.
