Version v3.12.13.0

Hello,
I seem to be having an issue getting CofG to work as I would like please see attached a screenshot of SD and the paper version. Sadly, both very different from each other.

You're comparing a weight/moment graph in your PoH with a weight/CoG graph in SkyDemon. If your intention was to transcribe the graph into SkyDemon, you need to convert those units first.

It looks to me like you are confusing the X-axis units.

The units in SD are distance from datum ('arm'), whereas those on your spreadsheet are moment, which is weight x arm.

(Edit - I see my post has crossed with Tim's!)
