Default Storch CG?

I just received a set of plans through the AMA for the Feisler Storch. While I was looking over the plans I noticed there is no marking for the CG any where. Can someone provide me where the CG is located. Thanks Ken

Ken ,
I am not sure which plans you have but I have had a few different Fi-156 Storchs and they all had the C.G around 25% to 27% of the chord measured back from the leading edge .Be sure to measure from the leading edge of the wing and not wing slat.
They also like to be slightly nose heavy (just a slight dip of the nose )

You can find links to online CG calculators in the "free plans and design aids" sticky thread at the top of the listings for this forum as well.
