Re: hangar 9 Alpha

Does this happen only when you are piloting the plane? My Nexstar had a problem like this but by instructor watched me not the plane. Turns out in my inexperience I was not holding the control lever square causing it to turn or fade right.

Re: hangar 9 Alpha

Does your Alpha hold the motor down with straps? Is it possible they are not tight enough and the motor shifted causing too much right thrust. You would really notice this under acceleration. One other thing to check is that both of your main gear whels are turning freely. If one is sticky it will pull in that direction.
