Thanks. It all makes sense but translating it into the real world is a bit more difficult. I thought the way to get the CG was to dive the model and see if it flew straight or recovered on its own. The latter indicating a forward CG. The CG, once found, is left alone thereon. Its a new concept to be moving the CG back until just forward of the point of marginal instability. It does make sense though that you want the CG back and thus minimizing the need for decalage....just a shift in the paradigm.
