c of g? for first strike supercat/bobcat

Recommended Posts

needing the c.of .g -mac..for the first strike suprecat/bobcat..Ive had her back in the air finnally, but with a full 45ltrs of fuel up the front she was very nose heavy,approach was made at 50-55 knotts but needed a fair bit og back stick to hold her just before round out set 50 knotts pulled back to round out and nothing? she continued inyo the ground,full back pressure applied but she just sank gently into the ground-No round out_No bounce, definate stall,a quick glance at ias on touch down still over 40 knotts (stall in normal configuration is 37knotts).


any way any info on these beasts much appreciated..having a hell og a time getting info?
