    I have scratch built a 1/10th scale PSS Bf109.
    Can anyone tell me at what percentage of the wing chord should the C of G be located.

    Thanks

    It depends on the airofoil type and its length. Usually between 25%-33% at the Mean Aerodynamic Chord.

    Bf109 had the NACA 2R1 14.2 wingroot airfoil and the NACA 2R1 11 wingtip airfoil for the Bf109b - Bf109 E and the NACA 2R1 11.35 wingtip airfoil for the Bf109F-Bf109K
