Default First build question

I'm building a mono and and using the speedmaster stinger strut and mounting the rudder on the right side. I need to know if it is ok if the rudder does not extend out as far as prop. or does it need to be at least even with prop? Thanks

If the rudder is in front of the prop, it's water deflection will interupt the flow of "clean" (undisturbed) water to the prop. It is best to have the leading edge of the rudder even with or behind the prop.

Heres a pic of the setup on my mono with the speedmaster stinger... goes perfectly straight at WOT without touching the steering
