Anyone know offhand where the CG should be on a GWS J-3 Stick?


I'm setting up my old J-3 Stick for an evening flight, but I can't remember where the CG should be...and who knows where the instructions are... . Haven't flown it for nearly a year!

If I remember correctly, 50-55mm, or is that the TM...geez, it's been awhile... !

Appreciate any quick help, thanks.

Thanks Will....

I finally remembered that I had marked the fuse where the front wing mount should be...puts the CG right in the ballpark.

...(~ahem~)...managed to put it into the barn roof twice in two flights, I guess 2 for 2 isn't bad (windier than I thought)
