If no one can help you here's what you can do. I do believe that plane has a wing with a constant chord. If so, you can place the center of gravity 30% of the chord behind the leading edge. Dan.

Most times the 30% guideline coincides with the location of the main wing spar.

j, Put it 30% of the wing chord behind the leading edge of the wing. That's where I put it on my Champ and it flies great. Dan.
