The suggested CG is a good place to start. I have built the same plane (from foam) Whiskers is right the plane will twist if it is not braced. It will fly the way it is, but it can fly really wierd. The way I did it was to run 2 strips of material from about where the carbon rod is located on your wing running back to the tail to the point where the elevator attaches to the tail. The strips are approximately 1 1/4 inch wide at the tail and almost 2 inches at the wing. You appear to have the rudder and elevator servos mounted on the top horizontal surface so attach the strips on a 45 degree angle between the horizontal and vertical surfaces of the plane (looks like this upside down) \ I use this setup on all my builds to give them a bit more rigidity. I don't know what prop you are planning to use but I have had good luck with an 11" x 8" on that motor. Hope this helps - Good Luck
