Default CG for Zirolli Corsair

would someone be kind enough to tell the CG location on a Zirolli Corsair and whether it is gear up or down.
Thanks

From the Ziroli site: CG Location: 5" back from leading edge of wing at the fuse with the gear up .

Default CG

Hi Didiwatt-
Wanted to share my thoughts on Ziroli's cg- I found it to be quite conservative. I ended up 1/2 inch further back, and it made a world of difference in landing speed and also how it settled in. Wheels up of course while balancing. Sweet flying warbird with Zenoah GT80 power.
