    No big deal...

    Unscrew the grub screw holding the prop shaft onto the motor shaft.

    Then slide the prop shaft back further. If this is not possible, use a drill bit to clear a bit more material from the prop shaft.

    The plane flies just fine as is, provided the shaft is locked down well.


    BTW: I hope you will not attempt to fly this plane without first being instructed on a regular trainer.
    There is an art . . . to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

    Yeah i had about 12minutes on a trainer and after Crash1414... buddy let me fly his parkzone p51 I flew it better than the trainer. We are hook up to the buddy system with Dx6i radio's so every time it gets out of hand when i try to land crash1414 will take over. Sofar 3 rough landings but it gets better with time, I donot plain on flying those planes by my self just yet only with a trainer on the buddy system. I'll have my buddy take a look because i left the plane at his home but if i can remember it look like the shaft was a fixed one. Thanks
