Joe, the CG is listed in the manual on the last page. On the aileron wing, the model should balance 1/4"-1/2" in front of the leading edge of the spar. On the Slowfly wing, the CG point is 1/2" - 3/4" in front of the spar.

Hope that helps!

Mark

Thanks Mark.
Just in time...I was going out this morning and ready to go with the SmoothE. I built it 3 years ago and brought it out of mothballs. Just added the SlowWing for my 8yr old son to fly and couldn't find the manual. I forgot I had the big wing but it should be a perfect trainer given how well the plane flies with the sport wing.
Thanks again
joe

For future reference you can get a pdf copy of the manual right from the Mountain Models Page. Its right on the same page as the plane info is (near the bottom) comes in handy when you need info, or if you ordering a plane and want to see exactly what you will need to build it.
