Thanks guys. Was great to see her finally flying again

Question. Anyone had issues with blades not tracking properly?
I used the original spinner & hub, but new blades.
I balanced the spinner and prop assembly to the nth degree, but was shaking like hell.
I found the problem was one bladed canted rearwards around 3 or so degrees .
I shaved off some of the flat base area and angled it. Checked again and found it still had a slight angle backwards at the tip.
It still shook some but not as bad, so I'll adjust it again.

Was this a common issue or am I alone with this?

I don't think anyone complained before about the blades I've used several of these blades in the past, also for my FW-190

Happy to see that the Stuka still flies amongst some of use

I did a few flights 3 weeks ago somewhere last year I remembered that my Stuka flew really bad in the turns couldn't really put the finger on the problem.

3 weeks ago I did turn down the gyro gain to zero in flight and it behaved completely normal again! Don't really remember why I put a gyro in it, I think it was so that I could fly during windy days also.

It's HobbyEagle A3L that I took out of my BF-109 because I wasn't happy with the results. Might better bin in forever!

Took out the eastern front schemed Stuka today, needed lots of ail(R) & elev(U) trim so working on that now. It was something seeing a different color in the sky than Im used to.

Balancing a 3 blade is not that difficult. I use small pieces of aluminium tape.

First make sure that it's not the shaft that is bent.
