I just aquired one of these planes (50cc BME/PAU Extra 330L) Where are you balancing them for best overall (average) performance?

Start at the middle of the wingtube. Then move from there to your liking.

Mine is still ok. A little bit of rust on the pushrod ends, but I am flying in very humid climate. I was just preparing everything yesterday for a new flying season and I could not find any problems. I think I am in the 4th or 5th year with this plane.

The manual's suggested CG range for the model is from 5 to 6 and 1/2" from leading edge (@ root), however the wing tube's center is exactly 6 and 1/2" from leading edge. So if I started at the wing tube's center I'd already be at the most aft recommended CG setting. I don't think I've ever run into this before as usually the center of the tube/spar is right in the middle of the recommended CG range. The manual also states for IMAC, place the CG @ 5" from leading edge. Tha't a full inch and a half forward of the center of the wing tube. I'm slightly confused....
