Hi Chris,

Different people have tailwheels in different places (mine is on the nose),
plus I think you have unconventionally located main gear, right? I would
suggest you just try to get the empty CG between FS39 and FS40, and things
should work out pretty well regardless of the gear placement. If you get
this right you will probably not need to add ballast, but your mileage may

 I am getting close to the W and Balance of the airplane.

 On the Q200 with the continental does anyone use ballast in the tail.
If so, how much?

What are most people getting for tail weight?

Still having fun-------------------  Chris
