Description
The all-new AJ Aircraft Acuity was designed to give you all of the precision flight abilities of expensive composite aircraft, in a more traditional balsa & plywood frame. Designed by our own F3A pattern champion Andrew Jesky, this 62" model will be a perfect introduction to competition pattern aerobatics. With a tall & slender fuselage, slim swept wing and T-Canalyzer on the canopy, the Acuity will slip perfectly through any aerobatic maneuver. And, the suggested electronics setup will work perfectly with the 5&6s 4000-5000mAh packs you likely already own.

Rating My entry plane into the world of pattern
 
I'm fortunate to have some heavyweights in pattern helping/mentoring me as I make my entry. Today when I took this plane off for the first time and went through some of the basic flight characteristic tests, people took notice. It needed very little trimming and it was making all the right moves. It's a VERY nice flying airplane and should easily get me through Sportsman and Intermediate... maybe further than that. It went together well. The fit & finish is the best I've seen on an ARF. I'm looking forward to digging in to this thing.

What a great value! How else can you be in the air with a competitive pattern bird for well under $1000 total? Build went well - the biggest (non)issue I had was that the aileron linkages were just a little short - needed to make up my own to fit well. All-up weight with 5200mAh 5s pack is 6 lb 6 oz by my scale. First flight went very well - needed a little up trim, but otherwise everything was right on. CG is just little nose-heavy w/ batt full forward - plenty of room to scoot it back to hit my preference. The only advice/request I would make would be to provide longer elevator/aileron horns - both are VERY sensitive at recommended throws (I'm already down to 50% D/R on ail & 60% on elev), and my linkages are already on the inside servo arm holes. With longer horns, it would be easy to reduce throws a little and still have plenty of travel on the servos. AJ's recommended 5s motor provides awesome thrust/power for unlimited verticals. AWESOME aircraft overall!

AJ has really done a great job with this 62" pattern plane. Gets you into the precision aerobatics part of our hobby without breaking the bank. This is my 2nd AJ plane, the other a laser, and both surpass all expectations!

Hi Guys I just finished my 7th flight on my acuity.The build was great, but some information on the build would have been nice. One call to the office took care of the only question, the balance point.The only problem I had was the canopy pin broke the hole out right away. thanks for the canopy screws. It flys great. I just wish I could fly it as good as Andrew. Thanks Gene Wilson
