Paul, i think folks have missed this post as it is really for things people want to buy something -why not re-post in 'Glider Guiders' - I know there are a couple of online calculators so you may not need the original plan.

I’m pretty sure this query has already been answered by Roo & others & due to the forward wing sweep I think the recommended balance point turns out to be at the wing LE point where it meets the fuselage.
I’m sure that Roo will be along sometime to confirm where he balanced his T53.
