CG 200mm?


I just got one of these wing lately.
having problem getting it in the air though. Thought maybe you can help out.
I can't seem to get the CG right. The manual shows about 200mm.
I have a 2200mAh 11.1 batt on there and it is still tail heavy.

Can you measure your current setup CG and maybe post it? I would like to see if I can match what you have.

Thanks

action,

My CG is right at the recommended location. With wings and deltas, you will have some up trim. I launch mine by holding the left wing inside the winglet. I slowly advance the throttle while giving it a toss like a boomerang with the release wings level and throttle at just above 1/2 throttle at release. It took a few tries to get it down but once you do, you're in there!

Good luck,
Tony

Cg


Thanks.
I actually went back and measured it. It was not bad. I was just looking at the manual and it showed to be near the batt. But when measured, it was near the receiver compartment.
