After a fair amount of fiddling with props, etc, it appears the fuse was tweaking in flight. In my quest to make it lighter, I used some pretty soft 1/16" wood for the fuse. Apparently it was a bit too light.

Here's a link to the build of this one: I'm pretty sure you have to log in to view the pics

I had a Pronto in the mid 90s and LOVED it. It would fly in wind that would ground much larger heavier planes. This one had a Fox .25 in the nose spinning a 9x6 master airscrew.
Loved the plane and nice to hear Dave was such a nice guy.
