This is a great thread for anybody in the building/planning stage of a 7. If you are building a taildragger, I would recommend keeping everything mounted as far forward as possible especially if you are going with a light prop. It seems the 7 was designed around a heavier engine and heavier prop. Once you start adding people and baggage, the CG can move aft quickly, especially if you have a composite prop, even if it is a Constant Speed. Without the weight on the nose you can end up with a limited baggage capacity if you don't plan accordingly.
