It was to windy to to tell if it was nose heavy or how it really handled so I will have to wait for a calmer day. Unfortunatley I lost my prop spinner high in the sky and need to get a replacement. Did find the prop, the plane really glides well was one of my best landings. Any suggestions on the prop spinner would be great!
Same thing happened to me on my second flight. Prop and spinner went one way the plane the other. Unfortunately it hit a tree and then a fence and then the ground. I thought I caused the crash. Now I just make sure the spinner is tight before I fly.
As for the replacement. If it is a V1, V2 or V3 the shaft should be 2.3mm I think it went to 3mm for the V4. You should measure it anyway.
You can get all the hardware from this website.
