I have a relatively new Airfield P 51. I bent the shaft my last attempt to fly this bird. So I managed to locate the right propshaft and reassembled to fly again except without the spinner. It was permanently trashed the last time the plane went chasing after a Gopher.
So off I go to fly. The plane leaves the terra firma and instantly rolls to the right and augurs into the ground. No gophers this time so it must have been me. I was flying off of asphault with little if any wind. So the pavement rashed the plane bad enough that I am now lacking the confidence to go try again.
All surfaces are straight and controls work properly. I dont understand why this bird goes inverted the second it gets off the ground. This thing does not create enough motor torque to tip it--am I wrong?? Anyone want to meet at Rancho and help save this bird from total destruction?? Paying 6 dollars to fly for 30 seconds at baylands add insult to injury.
Let me know. Thanks in advance,
