Can someone tell me how to figure where the wing should be mounted in
relation to the length of the fuselage on a model airplane. I recently
purchased a duraplane on e-bay. When I received it looked as though the
wing was set back too far toward the tale. However, it did appear to be
balanced with the battery pack at the back of the servo compartment.
Another question is at exactly what point on the wing should you
measure the center of gravity from. On most trainers I've seen it is at
approxamately the thickest part of the wing and is usually stated as
_._ inches behind the leading edge of the wing.
