Default Sig Hog Bipe balancing

I brought a Sig Hog Bipe at the Perry show over the weekend. Iím installing a Saito 100 in it. What is the balancing range, What should the throws be on the ailerons?

Chris

I'm now building a Sig Hog Bipe. The kit instructions for balance point and control surface throws are as follows:

Balance Points (CG) measured from leading edge of top wing are:

3-5/8 inch (Good place to start if this is your first biplane)
4-1/8 inch (Better elevator response and quicker snaps)
4-5/8 inch (Use this CG with caution, may be to extreme for some)

Control throws are:

Aileron: 5/8 inch up and down
Elevator: 3/4 inch up and down
Rudder: 1-1/4 inch left and right

Good luck
