Default Shrike Engine Thrust

I am building a Shrike 40 with a Webra 50. I am in the process of putting the nose together and wondering if I should add any downthrust. I want to do it before I begin sanding so I can keep the shape right.

Any Help

Doug (Future Revver)

Ditto again,

And if at all possible at this stage of the build, move the firewall aft .25" - .375" or so. It will help with balance later on, especially with the Webra 50 up front.

Unfortunately,

it is too late for the firewall. I thought about it after I glued it in and got the top sheeting installed. I plan on putting the battery as far aft as I can, and I will deal with what I get.

0-0 it will be.

Thanks

Doug
