I finished mine and have installed everything except the battery. I moved everything pretty far forward, but it's so tail heavy that I can't move the battery far enough forward to balance it.

I set the CG at 13-1/4" from the nose or 6-3/8" from the rear end of the canopy (19-5/8 - 13-1/4 = 6-3/8"). So, what have I done wrong?

BTW, I used doubled DT foam with all paper removed for everything except the stab and elevator. They're 6mm Depron.

Update:
I used several of the online CG calculators and they all say 8" to 8-1/4" back from the LE of the wing. That would put the CG no where near 13-1/4" back.

What's correct?
