Set the CG on the spar -- it's a good starting point. The CG in the manual is too far forward and I ended up moving mine back a lot. I recently sold mine so I don't know where the CG ended up and I no longer have the manual... Hwever, I recall the control throws as being 8-10mm on the ailerons and 20-25mm on the elevator, and as much throw on the rudder as you can get.

The WM CAP 232 flies well and is not a "tip stalliing snap demon". I flew my first one as my third model and did pretty well with it until it was lost in a mid-air collision. I immeadiately bought another that I flew for a couple of years. FYI --- the YS .63FZ is the perfect engine for this model.

HTH!
