The specified CG as way off, not even in the ballpark.

Yikes. Thanks Don. Seems kind of heavy. Between your experience and that other guy who posted that it was tail heavy, now I'm "really" going to play with the movement of my Hyperflow EDF forward. I'm sure you've thought of this but have you thought about remounting the EDF a tad forward? The thing I've noted with the Wicked motors is they have a heavy rear so I am always moving my engine mount location to account for it. Good luck and waiting to see where that CG really ends up.
