The plane should be defueled, full oil, place it on jacks and level it, measure each wheel from the datum, note the distance and amount on the scale,
weight x arm =moment,
I had 44 on the main and -16 on the nose,
add all the weights, add all the moments, divide the moments by weight for CG
Don't forget to check and update your equipment list.

okay I get it, but i don't see it? Is there a graph showing the place the weight and balance should be calculated. I know its behind the datum line by 26 to 30 but isn't there a graph to use to show just where that is or someway of doing the math? i just purchased a 415C, I'd like to do a weight and balance on it and see if I fall within the graph lines but, I don't have a graph, is there one, if yes, where, how do I download it.
