(I assume it will be in the instructions) Crashed my A-10 warthog the first flight last month when the recomended CG was so far off I could not keep the nose up. Hoping to avoid living that night mare again

(I still wake up in a cold sweat at night screaming as I watching my little A-10 tank killer, disintegrate in the beautiful grassy field)
I have the 800mm corsair and it was a bit tail heavy even with a bigger battery than recommend, so i glued x2 AA batteries right behind the cowl under the motor and the cg was dead on from there... I have heard the CG on almost all the 800mm were off and tail heavy and need weight in the front, but that could just be rumor... i'm not sure on the 1400mm planes.

Hope this helps...
