I hope they are better plans than the one I bought there. They were no way even close to accurate. Check these out here: http://www.the-blueprints.com/bluepr.../de-havilland/ Free to join. As you look through the site, and look at different drawings/not really plans-- you can get an idea if they might help out with your build. Good luck

Achieving CG is fun, the long tail booms really add weight behind the CG mark. I had issues with my scratch built pusher. Ended up running two 3s 2200 lipos in parrallal to achieve CG and still added a little lead to the nose. Looking forward to your build.

Thank you for the info. Yours is beautiful. What is the CG percentage? What is the ws and weight of yours?

Thanks, the vampire was Canada's first jet fighter so I decided to give my nothern neighbors a nod and use their squadons markings.

WS is 40" and the weight came in around 5lbs...had to add the extra lipo and lead in the nose for CG. She is bungee launched and fast despite the weight. I can check the CG measurements and get you an idea for where it falls on the wing from the intake/wing junction to help you with the CG.
