30% of avg chord at the root including ailerons should get any plane close. Fly and adjust to your liking :drink:

I had a profile Sbach and the motor mount was to weak. Got to add some aluminum rails to reinforce the motor mount. Being made with lite ply the mounts are to easily crushed. Epoxied some rails and all good.

33% is also a good number for hands off inverted. Maybe it depends on the model?

Depends on the airfoil shape. I dont know the bro who asked the question, so starting a little conservative seemed like the way to go :drink:

I wonder how it hovers or harriers. Post some videos. I was looking for a plane like that since it is hard to get a .55 Arf anymore.
