For the CG location,
If you take an look on youtube, at
you will see that this Lavotchkin fly with the CG at 195mm.
His E-mail confirm me that the value is right.
I set my CG at 195mm, and for the first flight I forward it to 190mm.

Thanks warbird...195 looks good in that video. How close are you to getting your first flight?
