^^^^^ +1. if you've used the root chord, the CG calc will be slightly off. as Eric recommended, you must use the centerline of the airplane and allow the natural lines of the wing outline to extend to the centerline. then take your measurements. 15-25% should be a good starting point. I'm guessing you'll find that 15% might be a tad nose heavy, but that's good too for the first few flights.
