Right & Down Thrust on Pusher Wing ?
Can anyoe help me out? I understand that in some models it's desirable to have right thrust and downthrust on the motor to counteract torque & stuff. That's on a conventional 'puller' prop set up.
I have just built a foam wing with a speed 300 DD pusher with a Gunther prop. It flies great, except ...
When I come out of a turn it pitches up, and I mean right up. Once I correctthe pitch up it seems to fly straight and level O.K. It looks like it's speed related somehow.
I also have full right aileron trim dialled in so I thought torque was a problem too.
On a 'pusher' set up do I still need down and right thrust on the motor? Or should I say would down and/or right thrust solve the problems I have.
