Default Delta Wing C of G calculator

Hi,
I have just bought a second hand delta model, and I have changed the old .40 size engine to a new OS 46 AX engine which is 83g heavier. I would like to find a C of G calculator which I can just enter the models dimensions into and get ball park C of G for this model. The models span is 1260mm: length is 750mm: and tip span is 230mm. Can anyone please help me with an easy to use C of G calculator program? Thanks!

PM me your e-mail... I've a nice one that might help.
In any case, if the CG is going forward, don't worry too much, you're just gaining stability.
Cheers

As Guille has stated, the stability will improve.
