Default Sig Kadet Senior ARF

I just finished assembling a Sig Kadet Senior ARF. With an O.S 70 four stroke in it. It took about 14 oz. in the nose to balance. Anyone know what one of these should weigh?

Default It will still fly well

My friend has one that is also a little tail heavy. We decided NOT to add the weight to the nose and fly it a little tail heavy. It flies well. Others have added the weight necessary to make it balance right on the recommended cg and it still flies well. So either way you are OK. If you are a beginner you may want to add the weight. It will make it more stable.
I think the recommended CG is a bit conservative. In reality you can vary from this CG and still have a nice flyer.

I just finished assembling one. With an OS .46fx it needed about 3/4 of a pound to ballance level at the recomended cg. After a couple of flights I removed about 1/2 of that weight and it flys better. I haven't weighed the plane yet. They fly great. They even fly inverted suprisingly well.
