Hear ya go Bob! Here is a CG calculator. Stick with the recommended 25% of the MAC(Mean Aerodynamic Cord) to begin with. I have used this several times, twice for planes I designed and built. It works great!!! Just holler if you need any help.

I wish I could have gotten my stuff to Chris in time for him to take it to Wausau. I expected to be home from Waukesha by late afternoon, but what was supposed to be a brief trip to remember my sister ended up being a real celebration of her life. It was worth it!!!

most kit planes will usually balance well enough to be flown if you put the cg at or near the main spar. good luck.
didn't you say Cris told you he had one of those before? maybe he can remember the cg.

pics

two pics from ffff 1.1.11

the wind was tough, but T.R. got one into the air and crashed it before i could get a picture of it. it was one of those few types that could handle the wind.
from the left is Andy,Jay,Craige, Jonathan, Tim, T.R., and last but not least, Wade.
It was a bit disappointing what with the 30 mph winds, but we still had a good time. Thanks for showing up guys. I hope the conditions are better next year.
I think i will build something that will handle the winds better for next year. Only 365 to go!

I'd suggest going back to post #3 of this topic from last years posting...phone numbers and an email to determine whats up for 2011. Too bad they don't have a web presence of any sort (that I can find). A Google search on their club results in this exact thread as their #1 hit. Their official club contact is on the AMA website http://modelaircraft.org/clubsearch.aspx Or Dan B. would likely know.
