I think it's 4" from the front of the belly pan.. I measured on both sides of the belly pan and then drew a line out from there.. Does that make sense?

That sounds like the CG for a Proud Bird not a Dago. I am not sure what it is.

I think you meant Lyle, Roger.

Lyle will just say, put the servos as far back as you can, Recevier and Battery between the servos and the fuel tank, and fly it...

That's what I thought too but I'm pretty sure that's where I started.. I think Bridge said 4.5" but that was a little jumpy.. I could be mistaken though, that was back in '05 I think..

You can do exactly what Dave said and it will probably be close enough.. They fly pretty good but make sure and keep on the right rudder for a while after take off.. Like all the way to #1

The thing has about an 8ft. long nose. It's a double tapered wing so I'll try 2 1/4 -2 3/8 from front of belly pan!! Thanks all.

If anyone cares, I ended up balancing it 2" from the front of the belly pan and it flies fine. Crudely tried to find MAC and went from there.
