    Default 0 thrustline

    Does anyone have a photo of the machined o thrustline mounting blocks? Are the lower ones longer to push out the engine?

    I can't find anywhere on this site that discusses thrustline, am I missing something?

    ON other sites there are three trillion pages on how good it is, surely if there was such a great gain would'nt the manufacturers have done something simmilar? What happens when you power up from a low power setting in the air at slow speed, do you get a large nose up pitch? What happens when you reduce power from full to idle in the air, do you get a noticible nose down pitch? With an Aircraft so modified do you have to carry more rudder with full power than you would with the normal engine mounting?

    The old adage if it sounds too good to be true it usually is seems to cover most things.

    Haven't tried it on a Short Wing but the thing I noticed on two SCs I installed it on was the lack of need for trim in any situation.
