Sig Ninja - CG Location & Recommended Throws?


Hey all, I've got this old Firebird, the Sig Ninja clone from the retail chain formerly known as Hobby Shack, and I was wondering if anyone would who knows would mind relating the proper CG location and control throws? I believe I got the plane balanced properly way back when, and it flies o.k. (SLOW!), but it'd be nice to know all the same.

Thanks!

EDIT

Sorry, I posted too soon. I found the answer by doing a search in Google's Usenet Archive. It is as follows:


Beginners:

Balance - 30%, 4" from leading edge
Control Throws -
Elevator - 3/8" UP, 3/8" DOWN
Ailerons - 1/2" UP, 7/16 DOWN


Experienced Pilots and Aerobatics

Balance - 35%, 4 1/2" from leading edge
Control Throws -
Elevator - 1/2" UP, 1/2" DOWN
Ailerons - 9/16" UP, 1/2" DOWN
