Wondering what center of gravity people with Corvair engines in their 750 STOL are seeing. When my plane got its AWC, at 841 lb, CG was at 251 mm.

At 1229 lb (24 gal fuel, 220 lb pilot), CG calculates at 374 mm.

I need quite a bit of nose up trim for level flight and am wondering how my CG location compares to others.

Great question,

I am seriously looking at a corvair powered Cruzer.    I am guessing the factory has a weight and balance envelope for the plane doesn't it?
