Default Flying Boat

Can anyone tell me where the CG is located on a Raidentech Flying Boat or the Hobby Lobby Wizard 3D Flying Hydro?

Angry Flying boat CG

The instructions if you can call them that don't even show the CG. The only instructions are pictures which aren't very clear. They do give you a 3" CD disc with the same pictures as the manual but no important information.
This is the Raiden Tech Flying Boat I am talking about.

Hi Hank,why not ask someone on the seaplane forum? Maybe someone there has the same airplane and can answer your question

Maybe a place to start is 25% to 33% of the wing width back from the leading edge. Just my 2 cents. Good luck.

Actually, the flying Hydro's need a more forward CG to fly well. 18-20% back on the "wing" is a much better place to start.

They can be flown further back but they get very twitchy fast.
