Hi Jim,

Cheers for the instructions, they are very clear and I think I have done the measurements correctly. The distance to Le touch point from a line that goes along base of wing is 15mm. The chord is 315mm...

I won't be able to change angle of attack as wing is glued and secured into fuselage. Will elev trim be good enough, or would ail trim be better.

Guessing mounting the wing properly in the first place would have been good. Does the angle of attack issue create big problems? Not sure if you saw the video of the maiden, but the plane pitched up an awful lot on take off. I could also add extra nose weight to move CG to 25%....?

I'm in the process of designing a. Better fuselage... I'll definitely need to factor this into the new build...
Rich
