There were two sizes. Probably the same proportionally, but I don't know that. If they are, then you can get the CG from here...

That shows the 40 size, and you can check dimensions to see if proportions are same as your 120 size. If so, use the CG shown on the plans and scale up.

Still practicing the "save"

Great looking BalsaNova Peter. The 1.08 is not a high Erving engine, lots of torque though. Really happy with a 15x7 or 15x8 APC prop. The original plans call for an 80” Wing. I clipped mine as well down to 72”. It is still a good floater. Set the CG at 25-30% and fine tune to your liking. I started at 30% and I believe it is close to hands off inverted there. I am running abou 20 degrees on the ailerons and elevator and 40 on the rudder. I am just sport flying. If you want to fly more precision, you will need to turn them down. It flies a lot like a pattern plane and with the tall fuse requires little rudder correction in knife edge.

Happy flying

Looks pretty short coupled for a pattern plane, but I am not sure what constitutes a pattern plane. It certainly is a good looking plane though, whatever it is.

Man you guys are the best!!! And fast TOO!! I looked at many pictures on the internet but could not identify it. I bought this plane for $75 and will be flying it soon. The engine is an ASP 108 with a 15x6 power point. I hope it pulls it okay. This is my first post and it was a very good choice on who to ask. Thanks to all of you guys.
