Cool CY Models SBD5 Dauntless 100” WS

Gentlemen - I am about 90% complete on this project and would like some ideas on the CG. Instructions call for 180-190 MM,s (7”-7 1/4”) from leading edge-however from what l gather Ziroli SBD also 100” WS calls for 5 1/4”-5 1/2” from the leading edge . That’s a large disparity for the same wingspan airplane , any thoughts? - Thanx, Bill

A verrry broad rule of thumb is to start at the main wing spar.

Follow the CY instructions. That's where they tested the model at. Dan.
