KC/EJF F-18 ARF Center of Gravity location

Ok, I know this question has probably been asked a million times but I swear the search engine can't find the info! It wont let you enter a two letter search term like CG. I searched for F-18 and balance but come up zero. I have the online PDF plans but I want to confirm where the CG should be located on the Minifan F-18. My roomie has the ARF and is going to fit retracts so I want to get the correct CG location before he mounts the mains. From my CAD drawings I show about 6.8 inches forward from the wing trailing edge (at the wing root). The previous owner of the plane has marks fairly close to that location.

I made the title of my post broad so the search engine could find it when someone else looks. There are so many posts on the F-18, it's hard to sort through all the posts! Kevin, you've created a monster
