The strut is set too shallow so drop it down when using the stock prop. It wouldn't hurt to replace the rudder linkage with some 4-40 threaded rod.
The above will get you on the water but then later on, go to the TC 31 thread to see what else you can do to it.

Yep read through all of it and write some of the things down. Break it in correctly and be patient are my tips. It can be frustrating, but stick with it and make sure it does get broken in correctly.
