Default Goldberg Eagle 63 CG location ?

During my recent move, I lost the plans to my Goldberg Eagle 63 kit. The plane is framed up and I am getting ready to finish the model. Does anyone have the CG location info from the plans ?

Do you have the original Eagle 63 of the Eagle II version? I can look at the plans that I have for the newer one tonight and let you know. I believe that the CG would be pretty close between the two versions. I have a PDF of the manual that I can send to you. PM me if you would like it and will e-mail it to you.

Chuck, I have the original Eagle 63 kit. I've looked through the build manual, but it refers to getting the CG location off the plans. I checked out the manual online for the eagle 2 and it also refers to the plans.I 'm pretty sure that the CG is the same on both the Eagle 63 and the Eagle 2. A measurement from the leading edge back to the CG (and range) would help me out.

http://manuals.hobbico.com/gbg/gbga0056-manual.pdf
page 45 . If you set the CG on the front of the main spar , this well be a good place for you first flights, then ajust to your flying style.

That's pg 44 in the manual or page 45 of the pdf file.

I checked my plans this morning, the CG range on the Eagle 2 was 3 5/8 to 4 1/2inches back from the LE.
The preferred location is listed as the front edge of the spar, which is right about in the center of that range.

Crossman, I found my plans last night while going through some boxes from my move. The Eagle 63 measures 3-3/4 to 4-1/2 with the CG on the center of the main spar. Both Eagle 63 / Eagle 2 are close to each other. And Thanks as your info was what I was looking for......Jeff C....
