As far as this CG discussion goes mine is somewhere around 80-82 mm. I placed a 10 mm wide piece of electric tape on the underside of each wing and use the turnerm fingertip method to ensure I am in the ballpark. I have a block of foam installed in the front of the battery tray that is cut so that with my 2200 batteries all I have to do is slide the battery in till it touches the foam and strap it down to get the desired CG. With the 2650 and 2800 batteries I made reference marks on the tray and battery to achieve the same CG. I prefer a touch nose heavy for all of my planes. That said the Edge will still fly great anywhere in that 80-90 range and maybe beyond. I think harrier, and KE are easier and it penetrates the wind better a touch nose heavy. Get some flights under you belt and try some different CGs to see what you like but it all comes down to personal taste and it would be easy to over-think this thing.
