Hangar-9 P51 Mustang 60 CG
Hi all

I have just completed putting together a Hangar-9 P51 Mustang (Miss America)

They say the plane should balance 4 3/4" behind the leading edge of the wing.

What portion of the wing constitutes the leading edge from where to measure it? Am I correct in assuming that it is the most forward part of the wing where it attaches to the fuse?

I think what Marcel is saying is do you measure from the leading edge of the wing at the fuselage, or farther out toward the tip of the wing. The leading edge on the mustang is not a straight line. I measured the distance back right at the side of the fuselage and have had good results.

Yes, a Mustang wing tapers twice, so basically what I needed to know is how far down the wing should you measure it.

The most logical was the most forward part on the wing where it meets the fuselage ...

Anyway, I did that, and with my Saito FA100, she did not need an ounce of weight anywhere, quite happy about that.
