There are members on the site that know how to do the formal calculation that will hopefully chime in.

There was 2-33 and TG2 /I think/ at Salem. I'm sure the CG for the 1-7 and 2-33 would be "close enough". I'll check what the 2-33 CG is.
Edit: I'll double check my plans but I don't recall seing the CG. It wouldn't be the first time I missed something

Novel idea with the spoilers! Keep up the great work!
No luck getting tiny drill bit at the hardware store. Time to improvise.....
Will see what happens.
To be continued.....
Take a piece of wire or a pin the correct size and smash the tip to flatten it out, them use it like a drill. It works great
It's not complicated, bigger is better.
So here is the "spoiler kit"
Not knowing about Len's idea above I used the age old method.........
When in doubt use a bigger hammer
I used the same wire I used for the staples, sharpened the tip and hammered it trough the spoilers
Amazing what you can do with brute power
Here is the finished product. 90 degrees up travel, spring return action and positive lock when in closed position.
Next is just sand the spoilers to the contour of the ribs and ..... done with them.
