    super aeromaster center of gravity

    I have a super aeromaster that was given to me. I do not have plans as it is completely built. However, I don.t know where the center of gravity is at. does anyone have the plans who can measure it for me.

    Also, I have a Super Tigre 51. is this too small for this airplane.

    The Super Aeromaster could be built with different wing configurations. I suggest that you down load the instruction manual from the Great Planes site, determine your specific wing configuration, and then use the CG for your wing configuration. Good luck!

    Here is the link to the instruction manual:

    Most people use more power than that, but it really depends on the weight of the plane and the kind of flying you like to do. I saw one fly quite well on a Saito 62, which is less powerful than your engine, but I think that plane was a little lighter than average. If you find your CG is too far back then get a bigger engine for it. It will probably benefit anyway. But if it balances pretty well with the ST 51 then I would try it with that engine and maybe about a 12x4 prop.
