Optimum CG in a AXN?

Postby hakank » Sun Jan 29, 2012 10:40 am

After some flights with the AXN and now lately with some wind I'm checking in what you guys think to be the best CG for a AXN? I have it just a little heavy in the front then as in the manual but still don't feel comfortable with it. It feels somewhat shaky or it's me that's used to more heavy planes..

Thanks for your input.

I just fly them with whatever the CG is when you throw a 2200mAH 3S battery in the front.

Seems pretty good to me like that.

Ok.

I'm running a 4 cell 1800mAh setup with a slighter heavier motor than the stock one. I assume you run Turning which means my 4 cell acc is 12gr heavier then yours which might not compensate for my 20gr heavier motor and servos (I'm running digital with metal gear)

Ok thanks, I will try to fiddle with the CG when it gets warmer.

with glider like airplanes (ie no sweep and the fuselage isnt a major contributor to lift) usually putting the cg at or a bit in front of the thickest point of the wing profile is a decent enough starting point
