Default Staufenbiel fox pro v2

Can any one help with the balance point measurement for a Staufenbiel Fox Pro V2. The instructions are in german, and my translation by google is not very clear.

The instructions are-"Schwerpunkt: 40mm hinter der Nasenleiste". Can you explain what this means in English? I presume it means 40 mm behind some part of the wing, but where?

Correct, Nasenleiste is literally leading edge bar, but just say leading edge, which is straight on the Fox.

Tis model is scaled about 1:6, and absolutely "scale" would be a C/G between 35mm and 62mm, so 40mm should be pretty stable. Seems to be a good starting point at least.

Ok, Many thanks for the info. It is very nose heavy at 44mm, but I will start with that. Very pleased to have some advice from the Northern hemisphere to the Southern hemisphere down under.
