I have installed an ASP FS180 in mine, make it fly geat.  I have also installed a baffelled silencer from Just engines as it was slightly noisy if you fly on a sensitive site.

Anyone got a definitive C of G for this? I've seen published figures of 150 to 178 mm back from the LE.

Hello friends.
I am trying to find a store in UK where I can order a Great Planes Giant Big Stik
that I would like to use with my Saito FG-30B.
Thanks for the tips.

There was also an addendum to the Manual correcting the misprinted CG and control throws, but frankly, the CG range is so huge on this plane that I even brought it back to the originally stated 7" (Just to see what would happen) and found that I liked it even better there!font>

That is 175 mm
