Can you explain (in layman's terms) what the thinking is behind specifying the CG locations in these balsa parts? ('Cause frankly I'm pretty clueless as to why you're doing that. )



Because Craig said to why of course!

Actually, I think we are just shooting for as much accuracy as possible. As Craig mentioned, 71% is an estimate based on general shape of cones / transitions. Since we added "reversed" transitions and tail cones, it seemed logical that the CG location would switch orientation as well since the majority of the mass in the components was now also reversed. Again, these estimations are up for review / discussion and can be overridden and calculated by Rocksim.
