Default Question about CG

Hi guys,

Ollie is correct in that the suggested CG for a flying wing should be in the 15% of MAC range. I ran the numbers on my Zagi and it comes out at 17% of MAC for the factory recomendation. I ran it on the Planos web site and on Design Calc with the same results. The missing section of aileron I do not think significantly affects the calculation. At any rate CG is a range of allowed values, not an absolute number.
