Art-tech Yak 54 Center of Gravity

Hi I bought an Art-Tech Yak 54, and I think the CG is way off on these
planes. Am I correct or am I doing something wrong measuring the Center
of Gravity on this plane. I find it to be very tail heavy am I correct. Can
an yone help me here?

Welcome to RC Groups!

How are you sure it's tail heavy? The CG should be located ~1/3 the way back from the LE of the wind at the fuselage.

I am Looking at their manual on page 5 and it says starting from the front
of the wing and going back two and one half inches is the acceptable CG.
