on the twin tanks I was told to mount them so the rear touches the turbine mount area so that is as far back as they go. This seems correct to me as the CG should be forward of that but wanted to see where others mount them. Thanks!

Default Setting up travel

So do I measure the deflection on the stab at the trailing edge of the surface?
