Default Q40 unknown plane

Anyone know anything about this plane? May be a Nemesis or? The guy I bought it from didnt know what it was. Need to know the cg and any other info would be appreciated. Wing is CF, has the old style hinges so I think it must be an older Q40.
Thanks

It's a Rich Tocci Nemesis from the mid-90's. I never had one so I don't know where the CG should be.

A safe starting point.

C.G. 2 1/4" back from the LE at the belly pan.

Elevator throw: 3/16 up and down. Down can be reduced later.

Aileron throw: 3/16 up and down measured at the inboard point.

Rudder throw: Full throw 1/2" right. Left rudder is hardly needed so suit yourself.

Most of these will probably be adjusted as you trim for the course.
