Default Fliton extra 260 mini CG adjustment help needed

Does anyone own one? Or knows the cg on this aircraft. Flitons manual say 2.30 to 3.30 inches from LE but plane always feels tail heavy. Haven't flown yet. What is the general rule for mini 3d aircraft? 1/3 of the chord? Or 3/8 any advises? I'm not a 3d guy. Just sport flying. I'm going to maiden it I'm just a little nervous because nose heavy flies poorly but tail heavy flies once you know.

is 2.30 behind l/e also around 30%?

If not, I would try somewhere between the 2.30 and 30% (if 30% is in front of 2.30, that is).

I have one . i dont know where CG is supposed to be but i do remember that it flies best for me with battery further back than they recommended. mine is centered over the wing tube.. i flew it forward and kept moving it back to where it suited me.. i have had it as forward as the firewall just to see how it flew
