    Another CG question Bob.
    This foamy testing is revealing and very interesting. Never thought the the thrust angle of the motor would affect the foamy version’s flight so much, but I guess it does. Will the position of the gear, down or up, affect the CG? It looks like when the gear is retracted they fold down toward the tail, putting more weight toward the tail. This brings up the question of how to configure the aircraft for CG setting. Do you CG with wings extended, gear down and an empty tank? OR wings swept back, gear up and full tanks? Some kind of in-flight CG compensation for changes in configuration may be required.
