AXN Cloud Fly CG - setup to glide?
Hey guys I picked up an AXN. Problem is, it's nose diving on the toss, bad. It flys fine once I get it airborne but I'm having to javeline toss it and even then it swoops to almost the ground before it sails off. I've tried various throttle settings (1/4, 1/2) due to the high mounted motor with the same result.
I found this video showing the proper toss, but with his, it glides forever with a power off toss.
If I did that toss it'd go about 10 feet and nose into the ground. Should I set mine up like that? That would require a pretty big adjustment from the recommended 51.5mm CG location. Per this wiki:
I'm not really worried about a minimal loss of performance, I just don't wanna keep tossing it into the dirt.
To make it more tail heavy I need to move CG forward right?

what battery are you using , i have modified the internals to take a 2200 mah 3s , and it balances perfectly and glides great .. I also followed the wiki when i got mine and its had more flights than any other plane...
Great for fpv too

I always take the plane to a tall weeded field. SOFT weeds. Always for a first flight.
COG might be perfect. But the angle of wing & tail incidences could be way off.
Did that more than 1 time with ARFs.
WE ARE the final aircraft designers of each plane we buy.
