I can not help you tune if you cant help me with the most basic and important info my friend.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cg on a flying wing is the most important place to start at.
Sorry klique,
I guess i didn't make myself clear.
I don't own a ZII at the moment.
I was thinking of getting one and searched for flaws.
Saw the "Not stable at level flight" thread of the ZII and that is why i am asking ZII owners of the ZII behavior regarding throttle changes.
So long story short i can't tell you where my CG is ....

OK cool ,set where suggested she will not raise or lower much at all across the speed range with throttle change.

I get on and off the throttle here and she tracks like an arrow , so true its scary.

i will be waiting your response,

I have no idea of weight without electronics. I just built mine and balanced it at 9 3/8" from nose. Balance it there, and set elevons correct, fly.

Nice motto. Maybe he will use it on his website.

I certainly trust him as well as admire his focus and determination to provide a really great product for his customers.
