....that's the big one, the 60 size. I'll look in the pile for the manual.

C/G is 4 1/2" from the leading edge at the start of the wing saddle.

The following throws are recommended for early flights.

Elevator- 10 to 15 degrees
Ailerons- 10 to 20 degrees
Rudder- 15 to 25 degrees
Nosewheel- 10 to 15 degrees

Make darned sure the elevator servo cannot rip loose. The stock mounting is not
satisfactory. The servor comes loose, and the plane "lawn darts" into tiny pieces. []

Don't ask how I know this. Cyclic Hardover's plane was lost too, both on maiden flights. [X(]

I ended up actually bolting the servo through the elevator so it cannot possible come loose.
