    I've decided that I need to add some right thrust. In a vertical climb it takes a good deal of right rudder to maintain a straight line. The nose wanting to go left shows up at other times too like needing more rudder to do a right rudder knife edge and following the left thrust in every point of a point roll. You really notice it going to the third point of a four point roll.

    I have another one of the plastic shims that came with the Blazing Star mount like the one I used to make the shim for down thrust. I don't know if I'll get to it this week or not, but it needs doing.

    I flew the Extra again today, and the thrust is about right now with the added shim for right thrust. It's running and flying good now, but it still has some surge in the midrange, but not bad. Unfortunately I uncovered another problem today, I think the Chinese aluminum that the gear is made out of has a higher than normal amount of butter in the alloy. :confused:

    I pulled the wheel pants off for a better look and to make it fit in the mount in the truck. If you look close you'll see the airplane leaning. The right gear leg is bent.

    You will need a couple of days in the workshop to get that back in the air, the only reality important thing did you damage the engine.
