CG for .40 Midwest Corsair
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have recently aquired a midwest .40 sized Corsair as a gift. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the Center of Gravity might be for this aircraft.

Re: CG for .40 Midwest Corsair
General rule of thumb......25-35% of the MAC (mean aerodynamic chord)
Figure out the average chord length.....leading edge to trailing edge.
Measure back from the leading edge 25-35% of that. I'd set the CG to be a little closer to 25-28% at first and see how if flies. Move a battery around (or whatever weight you easily can) to change the CG until it flies that way you want it to!
But since the corsair wing is not a perfect 'hershey bar' type of wing with a constant chord it may be a little more difficult to get the MAC. I'd set the CG pretty well on the spar, or the thickest part of the airfoil and fly and adjust from there.
