Default Ventus 2ax 5m C of G

Can anyone tell me the correct centre of gravity position for a Ventus 2ax 5 metre glider? I have just purchased an unused model which has been around for a few years now and am in the process of setting it up.
Any help would be appreciated but if I could get a proven safe flying measurement from the leading edge (at the inboard end of the flaps or some other recognisable reference point) that would be great.
Thank you.

Default Manufacturers of Ventus 2ax

One of my friends has tracked the various manufacturers of the Ventus 2ax as follows:
Original manufacturer was HK Models, then Faltus, then Robbe and now Topmodel.
Trust this is of assistance.

I checked the topmodell page ( in french) and they have a 4,5 m ventus or a 6 m ventus.

but the easiest is to download a program to calculate the cg like Schwerpunkt52 ( in german) or go to c.g calc on the website of ecalc.ch ( the quite known online e-power calciulator) and get your correct C.G like this

hope this helps
