Quick question for you Cliff,
What are the control throws are you using for the salto?

I seem to think that it has been through 2 owners since Cliff moved it on.
Cheers,
Peter

Happy new year all. pls can someone confirm the CoG for the salto. did a quick calc and it appears to be around 87mm. was not sure if the value on the leaflet is for a larger span. thanks.

Hi
I think that 87-89mm is about right. My Valenta Salto at 4.5m wing span is at 93mm.

I don't know the CG on the PT one (sold mine a few years ago), but the similar sized Baudis one (4060mm span, 260mm root chord) flew well at 85mm and 83mm when fully ballasted with extra 2kg and on low rates.

89mm is a good starting point.
