The cg is on the main shaft (on ANY heli). If this is a flybarred heli, turn the head (doesn't matter if the blades are on or not) so the flybar is 90 degrees to the fuse and then put your fingers under the flybar. Ig it's FBL, take the blades off, put the blade bolts back in, turn the head so the blade holders are 90 degrees to fuse, and then put the tips of your fingers under the blade bolts. The heli needs to hang level. If it doesn't, you need to add weight to the heli or the fuse up in the nose. Don't try to fly this if it's tail heavy-you'll be constantly fighting it.

With that combo you want to shoot for slightly nose down when doing the CG check. just pick it up by the grips or the flybar, it really doesn't matter, there's bearings on everything so the result is the same.
