Salto 101

Quick Question - I just picked up a Salto 101 Sloper. Wings are hollow molded and about 60". Does anyone have an idea about where the CG may be for this little sloper? Thanks

If you are talking about a Valenta 1:10 scale Salto 101 ("Valenta 96" on the fuselage wing root) it is 47/48 mm from leading edge. There is little info out there for setting up this plane. One thing I read and disregarded as maybe a one-off problem is that level flight requires about 3/16" down travel on the ruddervators. As a result mine stalled and spun in on the first real toss off a cliff . It takes a lot of altitude to recover from a stall/spin. Some washout with a heat gun reduces tip stall.

Here is a Vimeo of a Salto 1:10 scale maiden flight (ending in a crash) that mentions the down elevons.
