I'm actually using a 7.4v nimh pack out of a Hobbyzone Supercub. So, your Stryker electronics if I understand anything about Strykers should make it a rocket.
Have fun these are great wings, and if you want a little spice check out the Kline Fogleman build thread lots of great ideas over there. Wings rule!!
The zagnuts calculator was kinda fixed to the shape and sweep of the zagnuts.

I found these 2 calculators that lets you enter all the numbers for the dimensions to accurately calculate a CG for this wing shape.


I like the 2nd site better because it helps you decide what %MAC you should use.

At 20% MAC, it comes out to 7" (all around flying skills).
At 25% MAC, it comes out to 7.5" (for expert flyers).

I'll start with 7" and work from there...

Thanks for your reply...
