CMP Cessna 182 .50 CG issue

I need some help here before I fly this thing. I have read that the stated CG of this plane is wrong in the manual. The manual says 68-73. I have heard people saying it should be right around 85mm. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thanks in advance. Here is a link to the plane, cessna

But i did not find anything, I was looking at a thread in RCU about the larger size version having CG issues. I have it set at 68MM and its tailheavy even with 6oz of lead in the front. Maybe i will just add more lead i guess.

I would pm some of the guys in the thread that are successfully flying theirs, and ask them directly about cog. You don't wanna mess with bad cog.
