Where should the Litestick CG be?

I have just finished my Litestick, the Instructions say the CG should be at about 60MM from the wings leading edge. The best I can do is like CG at 70 MM, I've got all the stuff slid almost up to the motor. How far back should the wing & Radio gear be from the motor?

You just need to slide your wing back toward the tail a little. Mine has crashed and been repaired so much I don't know how far back the wing should be on a stock Stik.

Somewhere between 25 to 35% of the wing cord

I'm sure these things aren't too critical, my Picostick flies quite happily at 80mm from the LE, over 48%.
It has a large tail area to stabilise it.
I have been flying a few years now but I'm not THAT good, wouldn't dream of trying a conventional model so tail heavy.

I'd leave it slightly tail heavy, and turn up the throws a lot and you will have a really manueverable ship. Everytime that I've built lite stiks I don't even bother to check the CG
