Is your prop properly sharpened and balanced? A dull prop will increase propwalk. Some propwalk is normal, and other than compensating for it with your rudder, I don't know of another fix for it.

I would think raising the strut a little would help that...

I have seen some rigger with thrust plates weather that will help you or not I don't know. It looks like a little wedge of cheese..........lol . Its a slightly angled piece of metal put behind the strut so it makes the struts offset a little from center sorta like I seen people mount there strut a little left of center in anticipation of prop walk. This is what I am talking about they are I think more for a plane application, but honest I have seen them on a D hydro............ http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXE951&P=7

It is just another thing to think about hope it helps

Please if this is a bad idea let me know.
