May not be CoG of frame but is Center of lift and where you want CoG to be as that is also the center or pivot moment ie where the craft will pivot around when banking, pitching and yawing.

The craft will handle and hover a great deal better with all those points coinciding, that is what was meant.

Why do you think the CoG on Helicopters tends to be inline with the rotor drive shaft, same reason.
