CG on a scrath built wing

I took a pair of thin Zagi wings (courtesy of Oranator) and glued them to a scratch built, blue foam fuselage. It looks and feels like it should fly on the slope, but where should the CG be? The servos are standard and mounted in the winglike a Zagi, and the Rx and battery are in the fuselage. Would the CG be pretty much the same as a Zagi? The root chord of the wing is 11", and the fuselage I made is 15", with the nose sticking out and the tail almost flush witn the wing. It kind of looks like a JW from Bowman's Hobbies http://www.bowmanshobbies.com , except the wing is straight from a Zagi. Thanks in advance.

Cg stands are for sissys.....I prefer the "throw your plane until it doesn't nose dive or flip" method. That's how they used to do it when men were men and surfboards were made out of wood.....CG stand.....geeeeeez

Went to Bowman hobbies site and took a look at the JW...
The aircraft is $79 which according to their site includes 2 servos
and a hitec 555 rx. Hmmmm....normal price for the 555 rx is around 55 to 65 and the servos are around 17 apiece. If ya do the math, regular st. price just for the rx and servos = 89 to 99
bux. This wouldn't be a bad deal at all....just find a way to mount
a brushless or mag mayhem on it and I think ya got something that would tear up the sky!
