Advice on best way to find CG on f550 with landing gear?

I built my f550, and set up the center of gravity by assuming it was located in the center of the craft between the top and bottom plates. Flew pretty rock solid.

I've recently added aeroxcraft landing gear and soon a tarot gimbal. I've been playing wth my gains, looking for the sweet spot, and have noticed a bit more TBE and drift. Figured was from messing with gains.

But it occurred to me, that I haven't changed the COG since adding the landing gear. I remember once seeing a video of a guy who hung his craft from a string on one arm, and made some measurements to find his COG.

I can't seem to find this video again, and am wondering if anyone has any advice for finding the COG of an f550 with landing gear and gimbal?
