CG setting

I also was just thinking about CG on the 4-Site and how it affects flight. Last night I could tell by the way the plane was flying that the CG is AFT. I'm not really a 3D flyer although I have a few 3D plans. I'm thinking now that moving the CG forward a bit may make the 4-Site a little more easier to fly (outside) but at the cost of some of the 3D capability. The way this plane flys reminds me of the GWS TM-350-3D. It was also hard to manage with the stock CG. After I moved the CG forward on the TM-350, the plane flew much better but then again, it may not be better from a 3D perspective.

I am going to work with the CG next as I do most of my flying outside or in the yard. This plane is very sensitive to wind and thats one drawback of a 3D plane. So it looks like I will be modding this plane for outdoor flight.
