Danny 3m res sailplane CG location-need help

I've recently finished a re-build of an older damaged Danny 3m res sailplane, and need help with locating the CG. The root wing chord is 2600mm. The middle position of the tow hook is 1100mm behind the leading edge, or 42%. If the hook is supposed to be ahead of the CG, that would put the CG somewhere around 115-120mm, or around 45%. This all seems too far back, so can anybody help me with the proper CG location? Thanks.

The Danny flies well at that CG and a little farther aft depnding on the size of the Stab your model has. Start at 120mm with healthy control throws and adjust for your taste in pitch response. LJ
