FEJ F16 and F15 C of G Help
« on: August 27, 2014, 21:36:24 PM »
Hi Folks,

I could do with a little help on the C of G positions on the following Fly Eagle Jet`s

F16 1/8th scale old version no honeycomb, balanced out at 150mm from leading edge at the moment.

F15 1/9th scale old version no honeycomb, balanced out at 200mm from leading edge at the moment.

I brought these second hand, so not flown them yet, all fitted out and ready to go, just need help with the best place to start with the C of G on these jets. I have searched other forums and I have read lots of information and many different CG positions,

Any other advise on flying setup`s would help also

Many thanks in advance

Cheers Karl

Both the F16 and F15 have had test flights now and all seemed fine. Just need more flying time with them now. Cheers
