Gets very complicated SOMETIMES.

True lifting stab you can push the CG back well past 60% MAC. Before even attempting that we need photos of the aircraft.

Its far more common for a plane, such as the current Telemaster series, to have a lifting airfoil at the tail but to have significant "decalage" forcing the tail plane to actually be pushing down rather than lifting. Then you'd go back to the standard of appx 25% to 33% MAC of the main wing.
