Does anyone have a complete W&B form (in English and inches) for a 4? I see bits and pieces in the manual and it's not perfectly clear to me. I also don't see pilot and fuel datum, etc. And then there's the phrase "in flight contition"-- the CG changes with the wheel up, but you can't really measure that. Someone must have put together a complete fill-in-the-blank form, or even an Excel spreadsheet :^).

Thanks, Don. I'll put my numbers in a see what comes out. I do have to chuckle at the 140 lb. pilot weight though :^).

Hi Guys,

I knew I had seen the officially recognised moment arms printed somewhere.

They're here on the original Fiche de Navigabilite (C of A)

http://www.cfi-ev.scram.de/dev/wp-content/uploads/1990/08/RF4-Fiche-de-Navigabilite-114.pdf

They're at the bottom of page 2.
I won't insult your intelligence by converting the metric figures to Imperial.

Good luck.

Yours, Bob

...and the official RF3 Weight & Balance form is here:

http://www.club-fournier.org/index.php?option=com_docman&task=doc_download&gid=36&Itemid=12

See the last/lowest item on the page: 'Fiche de Pessee', and open that.

It is self explanatory and blank, it could easily be used for the RF4 with substitutions, and I'm sure Google will give an adequate translation.

Yours, Bob
