Default RE: engine angle

I don't believe you can get the engine shifted more that 2 degrees on a normal engine mount if that much. Don't shift anymore though. Use your trim to counteract left torque.
ON the ground.....the ailerons are of no use (except for cross-wind takeoffs)...the Rudder will keep the plane tracked down/up the runway in a straight line for takeoff. In the can use a combination of both trims. A .91 engine in a 60 size plane is a lot of power.....I would have personally use a .78 size engine if I wanted more power for 3D or aerobatic flying. The 91 size engine with a bigger prop will have more left torque which may be contributing to your problem.
