I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

I was just wondering if someone could explain this weird motor offset thing on planes?
I'm just trying to learn a few things while the weather is less than lovely outside.

Google 'model aircraft engine side thrust' and variations.

Put VERY simply the offset is there to counteract the effect of the swirling air of a rotating prop hitting the tailfin like a corkscrew, producing more pressure on one side of he fin than the other.....and effectively "yawing" the 'plane to the left - it also helps to counter the torque effect of the model trying to rotate around the engine.
