Hi,

I've had one flight with my one. I set the c.g at about 100mm back from the wing root leading edge and it flew fine. I think the measurement in the instructions is incorrect and it should be taken from the cutout in the front of the wing.

Ian.

Wish I had seen this sooner but I have the smaller 40 size Kyosho Breitling scheme and the instructions state 95-110 mm for the C.G. which I believe is around 4 in. It flies well at this C.G.
