I purchased the Acuity to replace the E'Tude I lost at last year's NATS. Can't beat the value for what you get for the price. Took a while figuring out how to mount the Plettenburg, but finally with some minor modifications managed to use a Great Planes Extra Large motor mount for a nifty installation. (See March 18 K-Factors) Plane flies great and needed very little trim. Just purchased a second Acuity as a back up. Would recommend this aircraft to anyone from sportsman to FAI.

This is one amazing aircraft. Simple to assemble and get flying. This plane delivers on every promise. I am looking forward to many contests with this weapon.

The quality of my yellow, blue, white 2m Acuity is outstanding. All glue joints were tight. Everything aligned correctly. I'm installing a Hacker A60-7s motor with a Gator 82mm spinner. Mine did not come with building instructions. Not a problem if you have built ARF's. Otherwise you can use the 62" Acuity manual as a Guide. I hope to fly it soon.

I wasn't sure if I wanted to order an 2M Acuity but when Jason won the Nats with one I figured I give it a try. It was going to be a winter assembly until Jason showed up and flew one at a local pattern contest. I went home that night and started on mine. I finished it last week and just finished the first weekend flying it. All I can say is wow. The airplane actually made me look like a qualified pattern flyer. I flew basic this summer because the airplane I was flying was so bad I couldn't get it through the Intermediate sequence. I don't want to fly Intermediate next season because I'm tired of getting beat by my son. So I tried the Advance Pattern. Not only did I get all the way through the sequence but people thought I'd been flying it a while. I equipped the airframe with the Himax motor turning a 19.5X13 3 blade. It will be my pattern weapon next season.

Rating 2m Acuity assembly and inital flights
 
After a rainy, cold and windy start to our NY spring, I finally got a chance to take my new 2m Acquity to the field for test flights. I am happy to say that all went well, and the plane flies super. After a few clicks of trim it was flying straight and level, and controlled very predictably. I was not able to obtain a starting CG for the 2m, so I ran the Acuity’s specs through an online CG calculator, and arrived at 8.57” from the LE at the wing root. That seemed quite aft to me, so I started out a bit ahead of that figure for the first flight, and worked back to that spec after each flight. The plane feels very slightly nose heavy, with just a touch of down on inverted flight, which feels good to me. I used throws sent from AJ: elevator 10 ° up, 12° down; ailerons 10° up and down; rudder about 25°. Control at those rates felt smooth and comfortable, and very adequate for all my maneuvers. The shipping carton is a real work of art, in that the plane arrived in perfect condition. Construction went smoothly. all hardware was excellent quality and worked perfectly. The control openings in the stabilizer needed to be opened slightly for my servo arms and linkages, but that was a minor trim with a knife. One thing to pay attention to is the cowl mounting. Remember that the motor projection, the centering of the motor shaft along with fitting the canopy are all related to the position of the cowl. It isn’t difficult, but don’t forget to be sure the canopy fits all the way back to the mounting bolts. Needless to say, I didn’t get that on the first try! A construction guide or a video would be a welcome addition, as would be a listing of the control throw and CG specs. I am neither an expert builder nor an expert pilot, but this was and enjoyable plane to assemble and a real treat to fly. From the first take off, the 2m Acquity has been a predictable and even a relaxing plane to fly. Controls are smooth and even, and landings have been slow and smooth. Visibility in the air is outstanding, the wing bottom pattern is a favorite of mine. I know from my initial flights that I am looking forward working with this plane and building my flight skills.
