CG on an Anniversary Eddition Piper Cub

I bought a Cub at the flea market the other day but it didn't come with plans.It did come with the instruction book and it says check the plans for the proper cg.It's a Carl Goldberg kit.It came with a K&B 60 Sportster (I think) quite heavy, but still the plane seems tail heavy.Any Ideas? Tks Dave

CG on Goldberg Cub

Measure the wing chord, leading edge to trailing edge.

Multiply this dimension by 25% and 30%

Mark these 2 locations on the bottom of the wing measured back from the leading edge.

This is the CG "range". It should balance somewhere between these 2 places.

If not, shift battery, receiver, etc. or add lead to get it to balance withing the range.
