You should start with 33% of the "mean aerodynamic chord" for conventional and biplane type aircraft. Simple huh?

If you would like I can move this thread into the Gliders/Sailplanes forum where you are a bit more likely to get an answer from someone who has flown the glider. If not 30-35% of the MAC should get you started.
Cheers,
