Loop a string around your wing tube and slide the wing on getting one or 2 threads leaving enough room that the string will slide free. Pick it up by the tube and it should balance right there for the perfect starting spot for trim flying. Once you get it trimmed you can start moving weight back a little at a time, I have found at the back of the wing tube is perfect once you get used to how wonderful it is in the air, like a big ***** cat.

I flew one of these for several years... great flying plane. The CG isn't real critical. If its in the ballpark as described by the previous gentleman, fly it and adjust as you prefer.
