Default Best CG location for a Great Planes Big Stik 60

The GP 66" span Big Stik 60 plan and instructions give a .75" wide range for it's CG location which equates to from approx. 4.00" - 4.75" behind the wing's LE. Even though most everyone has a different flying feel for their aircraft, what CG location have you found that works best.

A stik usually works very well at 27 % back from leading edge. At this point the nose should hang down slightly. On the original Jenson Ugly stik, the CG worked well at the spar.

Yep.. right on the spar. I own one. Very nice flying plane. I've got the OS 1.10 in mine. Good luck with yours.
