Acacia II F3J

A while back I tried to sell this bird but no one wanted it. So I just completed the radio install and need some lead for the nose and she is ready to fly. I have DS-361 for the rudder elevator and flaps and DS-168 in the ailerons. I programmed the 9303 JR and found it to be easier than the 8103 I have. I need to figure out the sliders but the rest was very nice. Heres some pics. I need nose weight.

Goinav8n,
Only a few of the F3J Acacia 2's were brought into the US. A CZ friend of mine brought about 3 or 4 in. I Love mine. It feels too heavy and the RG15 is a little fast for US TD competition but I've done well with mine. It can take a hell of a zoom launch and the RG15's ability to cover a lot of sky is useful. Only change I would make is trim the back of the flap to get 80-90 deg out of it. 60 deg of flap doesn't cut it when you bring the beast home!

Enjoy it,

Mike

Mike,

Just came across your post re the Acacia II. I just inherited one and am looking for some details. Can you tell me where to set the CG?

Thanks,
Ron
