Google how to do weight/balance/cg for real aircraft. The FAA has a comprehensive (and very understandable to us non-engineers) booklet available on line detailing how-to. Essentially block the plane up so it is level, weigh all the wheels, then using the distances do the math to find the current CG. Also details how to figure out how much to add where to get the cg where you want it. Very accurate.
