how to balance low wing aircraft

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
im building a .60 size corospit,
i know that on a high wing trainer, you balance it right side up and it
should be nose heavy

low wing craft are weighed upside down.
should the front of the plane go up or down?
im from Sudbury Ontario!

Its pretty much the same as with a high wing, except the plane is upside down. You want the nose to be level or slightly nose down. Its just easier to balance when upside down so it has a lower cg.
