Default Ace Seamaster CG?

Can anyone tell me the CG on a Seamaster (by Ace R/C - 60" wing)?

Also, I'm looking for plans and/or instruction manual for the ACE R/C Seamaster. Thanks! Patrick

Looked for my Ace Seamaster plans in the basement, no can find, most likely out in the shed, will take longer to find. Memory says it is on the main spar, have not changed or checked balance in years.

My assembly manual says "3 to 3-1/2" back from the leading edge of the wing".

Measure the chord of the wing, leading edge to trailing edge...lets say its 12 inches, take 12X25% = 3.....so 3 inches from the leading edge is where the balance should be to start out...(((This is only to be done on "constant chord" wings. Tapered wings is a different animal, you will need to find the MAC line. Look it up on the net.!!..There is a simple way, and hard way to do this, and it is really easy,,,if you learn how to do this, you will never need any "pro's" anymore! I defy anyone to argue with me on this.!!. I just know how it is here...hahahaha

Don't be a hack' ,,,, do it right, so it fly's good!!!
