Thor, I just maidened my 42 inch Unicorn and the CG is about right. I built mine right at 9.75" and it feels tail heavy in the air, very sensitive to input and inverted requires very little elevon to sustain it. But, that's how I like it.

As always, start at the recommended CG and move it around to fit your flying style. What time are u guys tomorrow?

We usually start the combat right about noon.

Darren tends to show up around 11:30-11:45ish and start flying his other planes while he waits for us to come and and play...

If it's the thicker black cloroplast, it's probably one of mine -- although I don't recall losing one. My plane still has two. Humm... I think we did do some trading with my spare one though. Maybe I didn't get the spare one back in my box after flying.

Who knows

I'll try to remember to put my meter back in my box Jared. Since the F-18 requires a boatload of support gear (fishing meter to measure bungee pull, hammer, et. al.) I don't usually keep the meter in my box anymore. But I'll try to remember to drop it in for Tuesday.
