    Q500 cg

    Hi Guys,
    Look in my last post I was talking about having trouble with needed down trim on my Q500 high wing racer because it was climbing some thing shocking I have re: checked the incidence & every thing is at zero. So now I need to look at the cg I did have the cg set at 3inches some of you guys said it might be to aft so I have moved the battery pack forward & now set the cg at 2 7/8 I now need to re: fly the racer but wont be able to do this until this week end. I have been looking at the cg on other racers & found that the Viper is 3inches. I aslo looked at the Nemo Q & that was 3 1/8 just hoping I'm going about this the wright way.
    Your comments are much appreciated.

    Hi Scoeroo,
    I thought 75mm was 3inches & even says in the viper manual the cg can be moved to 86mm

    Ran all my viper 500's at 2.75"....... Ihad mine running 160mph strait and level
    If your carrying down trim no matter what you do to stop the climbing.....you are tail heavy,
    Other RCU members have told you this as well
