I am trying to find the sweep angle of my delta wing scratch build. Any thoughts?

RTF, a simple protractor and a ruler will allow you to determine the sweep angle of your wing ... The CG is best determined by test gliding as each delta is slightly “different” ... Usually a good place to start is around 45% , close to the middle of the plane ...
