Hi

I can't remember off hand the exact position og the C/G for the hotspot, i'll have to pop out to the work shop to check if you are really stuck. I know that it is measured from the root rib leading edge back around 130 -150 mm??. If you have the instructions to hand the C/G is indicated on the schrematic diagram on the back page of the manual. Note make sure this is correct, as I had a bit of trouble on the first flight of my hotspot, were as the tank is forward CoG and full it is alittle to nose heavy, and requires up trim, so try to get the tank as far back without fowling the U/C. Also have plenty of controll movments just in case, were around 5 - 8mm of up elevons from the trailing edge is generally the normal nuetral position.

Good Luck
