Here is a picture. The plane is Sal Taibi's power house with a 36" wing from Bob Holdman. Bob and his helper both suggested a 50% CG starting point and yes the horizontal stab does lift. They also suggested a 1.5-2 degree incidence between the stab and the wing. It is currently built into the design go give the wing a 1.5 degree positive incident relative to the stab. This maybe backwards of what I really want. Yet that is how the plans produced the fuselage sides. Maybe I am reading the incidence meter incorrectly, it is a digital incidence meter and maybe it is really negative incidence from wing to stab.

As you can see I am confused and could use any help you provide. If you need to see a side view of the wing rib, or a close up of the horizontal stab let me know and I will post a picture in this thread.
