Fr3ak setup

I have a early fr3ak that I will be flying rudderless but don't know what the cg should be to start with , any help with set up would be appreciated.

Tom's suggestion to me was approximately 1/8" forward of the aft end of the flaperon servo pocket opening which is about 75mm from the leading edge. That is a safe place to start and adjust from there.

I had an early Fr3aK.... I wouldn't fly it rudderless. You'll appreciate the ability to control yaw with this plane. It's a pretty lively machine.

It was already set up that way when I got it,figured I would try it and change it later if it's not what I like.

In that case, I'd do the same thing. Good luck with it. It's a very capable plane in the right hands.
