Where do you recommend to start the CG at?
Where did you end up at?

I started on the recommended mark and nudged it back till the plane was neutral in inverted flight (no down required) at 1/2 throttle. I liked it there. Cracked mine up, but a replacement is in the work, great little 3D bird.

Jim is right on for starters. Really depends on your level of expertise and comfort. Start at the recommended point to be safe and work back til you can't take it any more. The good thing about fun flys is that you can vary the cg quite a bit becuase of the great stability and light wing loading.

Hehehe "Can't take it anymore" That's my problem. I always get to the point where I can't take it anymore than then sit with a week of white knuckles and my hair stand up and stuff. LOL

Ey I got a patent idea for someone. Make us a CG in flight setting machine! A linear servo which you can put on a slider or something that moves lead forwards and backwards. Something you can strap onto you plane to find CG in one quick and easy flight. Then you can unstrap the thing and put the CG in the right place for stress free flying. I always hate making a plane more tail heavy and then wondering when I take off if i'll be able to fly it. [sm=lol.gif]

Hey Spacey, now that's a cool idea. Might want to get a patent for that baby.

LOL Mike I think someone's going to stumble in here real soon and kick my butt for typing that. Although thinking about it more and more it might not be so impossible.

Ok, so it looks like that is about 5 3/4" back according to the plans.
