Attached are pictures of my plane. Now the weird thing! It will spin to the left all day long. It will not spin to the right. Left spins can be flat or nose down Most of the time it takes some sort of control inputs to stop the spin. Down elevator speeds it up and opposite aileron flattens the spin.

Right spin attempt fail with usually a spiral dive.

Now tell me why it only spins left? The motor is off during spin entry so no torque or P factor going. on. To enter kill the motor pull up and add full left rudder and ease off the elevator as the spin starts.

Just a wild guess, perhaps the fuselage wake blankets out more of the vertical stab when spinning left?
