Bobcat help

Mostly I want to know where the C of G should be. This is a .45 size pusher twin boom. It has swept wings almost delta shape. It has a lifting stab so usually the C of G would be more aft than usual. The wings are bolted to a fiberglass fuse and flopped around like a bat's wings, so I made a steel brace for inside the fuse and it stiffened the wings up a lot. The retract landing gear attach points were partly tore out so I installed fixed gear blocks. I made sure that the two elevator servos were not fighting each other. I am installing an OS heli engine and a Perry pump to control the fuel flow. I assume that the C of G should be just ahead of the L/G, if anyone has some info on this I would appreciate it.
