Could you please share some more details how you balance the plane with the lines.
Looks very interesting!
Thanks and regards, Tom

Sure Tom....Just hang the plane from a single point by placing the plane in a doubled over loop of string, then hang a plumb bob from the same point. I orient the wing at what I consider to be normal AOA for best glide.
This creates at standard method of checking the CG that can be recreated and any time after modifications are made to the plane.
I have never checked this method against other CG methods.
