Weird my push rod is connected to the bottom hole furthest away from the elevator wing. Where is yours connected? Which one would give me the most movement the bottom?

Wats the worst that can happen

Thats the position that will give you the least travel.
Closer to the wing increases throw.

Could it be too nose heavy. Haven't seen an 800mm FMS bird that didn't fly well with pushrods on outer horn positions. Things just happen a little quicker as the pushrods get positioned closer to the control surfaces, as deflection becomes greater.

I will move them to the center holes. I did ad about 28 grams to the nose. Which made my CG 45mm.

The one I have handles well at 55 - 60mm, measured from just outside the leading edge inlet. If you look back from the leading edge to the two panel lines that are about 7mm apart ( coming off the fuse and running outboard), that is the spot. All my pushrods are set to middle holes and its a fun bird.

I am guessing I didn't need the weight up front then to get the 45mm. I am new to the planes. I went back out and broke my last three bladed prop before it got off the ground . I need to find a more durable cheap alternative for this stock setup. Well I have a 1300 2s pack. Do you all know of a good prop for my setup? I see people saying 8x6, 7x5 I would think those would be way to big for this plane.
In the meantime I ordered the HK Radjet 800. It's probably a little to fast for me. But I think I will be ok with enough airspace I hope. So I am going to try and find a better spot to fly.

7x5 two blade prop is too small, the standard is 7x6x3, HobbyKing does sell them but a MAS will be stronger.

How do I land this thing?

GWS 8x6 2-blade works great. In fact that's what I fly with 1300mah 2s packs.

2 metre rule applies!

2 blade 7060 on stock esc and 3 cell, has worked so well on my F4u and now on the A1.

I'm running a ground down 800mm Spitfire prop on mine with 3s. On the stock setup a 2 blade from the Mustang or Spit would work as well. Much stronger than the 3 blade.

So would this prop here work? Is the adapters and a nut all I need to mount it? Thanks for your help guys
