    How much run time does your engine have on it? If it is a young engine it will get a little stronger as it breaks in. Where does the prop size fall in the recommended range for your engine? If it's...

    Those angles don't sound like that would cause the flight problems you seem to have encountered. How does your thrust line look. If the thrust line is too much up or down with respect the rest it...
