No need for apologies at all Richard - I think you've hit the nail on the head. If I was to give a bit of advice to anyone finishing off a WebBit now it would be "err on the safe side with the CoG - get it not on the spar, but definaitely in front of the spar".

Sorry to hear of the crashes, the Pink WebBIt of Froggys I have here is slighly nose down on the spar. If anything that would put it as a touch nose heavy and of course with a fuel tank up front even slightly heavier at the front for some of the flight.
Set up on the spar and with lots of movement could be a shock to anyone. PH's model balanced behind the spar and with so much movement I found it very hard to fly. If you wanting fast roll rate and stuff , then set up Expo and all the other mod cons with have now a days, if looking for a more stable flyer I'd conclude a touch nose heavy would make a big difference in the handling. I have to add I prefer calm and relaxed now a days.
Do you guys think it would be better to give a COG range. Spar as most rearward and slighly in front for more docile?
