Default SWEET V CG

Hello everybody,

Do you know the Q40 Sweet-V CG please???

I'm french and I need help.

I have no information about the CG of my SWEET-V.
With the CG I suppose, it's possible to balance the plane only with the battery at the end of the tail!
It seems to be wrong. I can't understand!!!!!..............

thanks to help me.

Sebastien

From personal racing experience, I find that 2-1/16" is too nose heavy.
I set up my Sweet-V's (five of them now) to 2.25" (57mm)
It flies very well at this setting. The battery is not in the tail. The battery is right in the middle of the wing saddle opening.
What are you using for a motor ? Perhaps your motor is very heavy.
