Flying Wing CG

I have this little flying wing, the same exact planform of a Pop fly, but a little smaller. My question is, where should it balance. It has a center chord of 7 inches. Thanks in advance.

Paul,
Here's the geometry involved to find the center of lift.

Thanks, I'd seen that before, but I was thinking it was for swept wings on conventional planes, I didn't know that it would work for a flying wing.
