If I recall, the inst. state it's 105-115mm from the leading edge by the fuse. I actually have mine set around 120mm back and I find that perfect. I can roll inverted and it pretty much stays there. Just my thoughts

Let us know where you end up on the cg.

The back end of the 2200mah lipo packs are even with the carbon spar in the wing and the 1800mah lipos are 1.5" forward of the carbon wing spar. I'm using the 79 gram Telink motor and 14g metal gear servos.

With this setup and a quick balance using my finger tips I found the balance point (cg) to be about 1/4" in-front of the aileron hinge line. Initially I thought...wow...this is gonna fly terrible but it is pretty neutral and very aerobatic and stable for me. :-)

Checked it 2 different ways and still come up with very close to 140mm back from the leading edge as measured from the wing root at the fuselage. Sounds really aft but on my plane, after the changes that I have made and a couple of crashes and repairs..that's where it is at. Keep in mind that I have a 45" wingspan so the plane wing loading is a little higher and as such might handle the aft cg a little better.

You would think that it would fly really tail heavy but has a really nice shallow glide slope which helped me win the spot landing contest last weekend. :-)

Has anyone had both the twisted hobbies servos for this plane and the Hitec HS65MG servos to compare them? Are the TH ones just as good?

Nickel... I have both, and am very happy with the new Twisted Hobbys Servo.

I think it will compete very nicely against the hitec 65s, same size and stuff.

I saw this, but it doesnt really state or show you how the removable wing works. when you click on the manual, it shows you the manual for the fixed wing version. I emailed them and told them about this.

Removable Wing Manual

I checked the link in the product page and it looks correct. Check to see if the cover pages says "Removable Wing" off to the right side then you should be good to go. Most of the manual is the same except for the carbon fiber tube install for the wings and the fuse brace assembly.

One of them you can take the wings off the other only come off if you crash it and even then you'd have to be trying pretty hard

Seriously though the only difference is a fibreglass box type thing that take the rod for the removable wing. The wings plug on to the rod with a carbon tube spar that is let into the wing and I believe they are held in place with a hook and elastic band system. I would think if your careful in the construction of the box and it's alignment with the wings it shouldn't have much if any impact on the flying. One thing I do know is the rod which fits into the box and spars is a pretty heavy lump of metal unless they have changed the design for this one. You could replace it with a suitably sized bit of carbon, though apart from the slightly higher all up weight which isn't necessarily a bad thing it should effect anything too badly being so close to the cog. Why not download the manual for both versions and take a look.

I finished my 330SC up recently and got a lot of time on it this weekend...man if this isn't the most precise foamy I've ever flown. Absolutely locks in to everything and I can't imagine a better tool for learning rifle rolls. Video coming soon!
