Default gws mustang (right thrust?)

I have recently completed the gws mustang and I have noticed that there is a significant amount of right thrust present. I did not note anything like this in the instruction manuel. Can anyone tell me if there should be any thrust built into this park flyer?

I don't follow...what is right thrust?

I have a Stang, but haven't noticed anything I thought was odd as far as the direction of thrust.

I guess I should have been more specific on my thrust question. On my mustang, the power system is off-set to the right so that there is right thrust built-in. In other words, there is supposed to be a 1mm gap between the spinner seat and the fuselage. On my mustang, there is a 1mm gap on the right side of the fuselage and about a 3mm gap on the left side of the fuselage which gives me a considerable amount of right thrust. I don't believe this should be and perhaps I have installed the wood mount at an angle causing this problem.

Mine is the same way. I think it might be due to a slight inperfection in the mold or something.

Default right thrust

right thrust is built in to counter the torqure of the motor pulling it left. Mine has it too. It really helps when it's going slow and you gun the motor. keeps it from snapping left
