Found my plan and magazine article, I have written on the plan 4 and a half inches to 5 and three quarter inches from the leading edge ( 115 - 146 mm ) . Unfortunately I can't remember where I got the info from but I am pretty sure it originated from Terry himself on this forum, mine ballances close to the max any goes well . Use this as a starting point I would not recommend starting any further back.

Hope this helps, Paul.

The leading edge is tapered isn't it? So Paul's measurement may be at fuselage sides and that could be near or same as 160 to 175 at the mid point of wing. Could be worth re- calculating using formula for tapered wing in various books. Also check for double taper - maybe TE is also tapered as it is in the larger Loaded Dice ( that plan is on Outerzone and shows CG position for that version )

Yes I measured on the fus sides and used the c of g stickers to mark the for and aft measures, I think the first flight was about the mid point then moved the battery back to where I felt comfortable with how it performed, not flown mine for a while now though I am a bit of a ic guy 😂

Looking good Shawn, I used a ply wing joiner as well 👍 with all the sheet on the wings they are realy strong , I think Terry aways built light and only added strength where needed.

Paul,
