After checking my calc for cg I was left scratching my head as I got the same answer as before at 115mm from the L/edge at the root . And then it dawned on me when I remeasured the original cg mark on the root section and to my amazement it was marked at 150mm ,another one for the books measure twice to get the cg right the first time ,took another 650 grams of lead to balance her out . It does however show how well behaved the Hurricane is as yes it was a bit of a hand full but it really didnt do anything nasty during its flight.
Well another Manilla slope Fest done and dusted ,and it was huge . Unfortunately I still have not flown the Fouga 90 but did get the Hurricane up and going it was tail heavy but was still well behaved .Managed to drop a wing on landing with some minor damage resulting Still I'm very happy with it performance . My Mate Dave gave the Hurricane the perfect launch
