Default RE: DA50 first gasser questions

Hi Jeff,
Yes I found it a bit off and did not trust the fit so I aligned it and taped it over night to let the epoxy setup really good. It's an ARF and I try to get around the idea that just because it looks like a flying model does not mean it will if I just slap it together. I hope to get some more flights in tomorrow. Trimming this plane has been harder than any other I have flown. I took out the down thrust and added just a bit more right. My CG is aft and I might try to get it forward just a tad. Your gonna love this engine, it is really easy to deal with. Sounds like you out smarted the standoffs! I just used the DA small ones and cut some 3/4" ones at work.
