Do I need to make a down e right thrust for a pylon?
I have read some topics here and I think that 2 degress down and 0 degress right will be my choice.
Any advice on this subject?
Most electric pylon planes do not add down thrust or right thrust. It is common in some motor-gliders or Hotliners to add down thrust (because they may have higher camber airfoils) but I have never added down-thrust to a Speed 400 size airframe up to 200+mph F5D planes. I have added right thrust only to EF-1 style pylon planes because they have short tail moments and large diameter propellers that create a lot of "P" factor on takeoff.
