Russ,

The COG actually varies based on the shape of the wing, with the elliptical COG being further toward the tailing edge and the trapezoidal COG falling closer to 33% of the chord- more toward the front.

You'll notice that the Knight Ghost and Spitfire use the eliptical, while the Blazing Babe and Shark Hunter use the trapezoidal wing patterns.

I appreciate your question- it even gave me the opportunity to learn a bit more about our planes.

Thanks

-Justin
