58" Aeromaster from Value Hobby. CG location problem

I'm thinking of buying a 58" Aeromaster aerobatic plane, not the bi-plane, from Value Hobby. http://www.valuehobby.com/product_de...=0&item_id=379

The instruction sheet can be downloaded here.
http://www.valuehobby.com/manual/Aeromaster.pdf

The main problem I see is the CG location. The picture shows it 85 mm back from LE and the wording says 110 mm back from LE at the fuselage.
Could the 85 mm picture be at the wing tip ???

Does anyone here have any experience with this particular mode from Value Hobby?

No experience here but in your shoes I would choose the CG point that is closer to the leading edge (85mm) and then work my way back if that proves to be too nose heavy. Going the other way can be disastrous.

What complicates this is that 4 15/16" converts to 125.5 mm!

I would follow fmw's advice if I were you. Start nose heavy (85mm) then work your way back on subsequent flights. Good luck!

I don't know where the spar is located.
I haven't bought it yet. I want to find out all I can before I buy it.
Anyone here have one?

I don't have that one but I have 2 other Value Hobby planes- the Sabre 35 and the 49" Yak. The Sabre didn't need many mods but the Yak really needed some help. The firewall was way too flimsy and the LG area needed quite a bit of beefing up. Flies nice though. I've considered the Aeromaster as a lazy flyer. I have way too many planes at this point...

Has anyone bought an Aeromaster?

http://www.valuehobby.com/airplanes/...er-46-arf.html

What is the verdict?

How is the quality? What is the covering? How is the canopy attached? What motor/battery do you recommend?

The plane looks like a good value but is it too good to be true?
