Hobby Lobby F 18 Hornet C of G please!
 
Hi guys,
I know there is a thread already on this F18 can anyone save me searching and tell me where the C of G should be? My F18 has a Little Screamer motor and I'm using a 2100 3S lipo so not stock.
I have had advice to go 1/2 to 3/4 inch forward of where the aileron rod comes out of the fuse to 1/3 of the wing cord back from the leading edge-puts the C of G behind the aileron rod-What do you think?
