Super Dimona

I have had this plane for a while and love it. There are reports of some bad tendencies but I haven't seen any. In fact this plane has exceeded my expectations. That said I have made some changes. 1. The motor mount needed to be flipped to give down thrust. 2. I have put in some washout by reflexing the ailerons up a few mm. 3. Probably most important the stated CG is wrong. The manual states 66mm back from the leading edge but that makes the plane very tail heavy. The correct CG should be 55 or 56 mm.
This plane flies great. In fact I usually fly at 1/4 to 1/2 throttle. I have not seen any bad stall tendencies. On landing I need to chop the trottle and glide it in. It wants to float.

If then cg was too far back, that would make it nose heavy I imagine. Interesting model though. Does it glide well?
