Default Proper Right Thrust adjustments?

Greetings
I know that a lot of people ask questions regarding whether to
set up a right thrust or not. I have a hand me down 82"
ISC Staudacher which was built and flown with a straight
thrust. I don't believe that this is proper for the 2.4 Sachs.
I'm convinced that I need to fly on about 2 degree right thrust.

My problem is wondering whether setting up a right thrust
by proping up the left mount will be a problem. You see,
this will result in having the thrust actually off center or
away from the center axis :<

Will this be a problem?
Do you think that I should redo the mount to get the thrust
(prop shaft) to center axis at the proper hub?

I'd hate to send this bird into ths sky,
only to watch it spiral into the ground.
Please help.
Thanks.
Larry

The correct thrust angle is important in getting the Staud. to fly straight. I flew the same plane in IMAC for a year. I ended up redrilling new holes to center the engine, after getting the thrust angle correct. I used G45 in mine.

Good luck, don't worry about crashing because of the improper thrust angle.

Default Back to the bench

Thanks, sanjoh
Looks like I'll labor over making it right.
Nothing beats proper preparation.
Patience on the ground equals success in the air.
