The brown truck came by today. Finally got the fabled 51" AJ Slick and the EPP Edge.

So, there definitely is a significant amount of right thrust built into the motor mount judging from the difference in the amount of square carbon fiber tube protruding from the top. I don't see much of a down thrust, though. I might just go ahead and use washers on the right side when mounting the motor to see if it does away with the issue. The ailerons also look like they'll flex from control horn to tip if you're heavy on the throttle, which I tend to be - will have to think of something to do if that becomes an issue. It may not, given how light this kit is. I'm also going to insert some carbon fiber rods in the square fiber tubes. After seeing those things shatter on Chopper62's plane, I think it needs some support. Off to build!
