Anyone have one of these that can give me CG, amount of throw, ect, ect.

Default CG,etc.

You can find your CG by; measuring the length of the cord (from leading edge of wing to trailing edge) then take 25% of that measurement. Regarding your controls throws; start out with Elevator 1/4" UP, 1/4"Down, Ailerons 7/16" UP, 7/16" Down, Rudder 5/8" Right, 5/8" Left. If you prefer metric, 1/4"= 6mm, 7/16"= 11mm, 5/8"= 16mm.

acep51,

Thanks for the reply.

The wing is tappered so the cord changes from wide at the root to narrow at the tip, so I still do not know where to measure from.
