FoV 1 32 P-39 unbalanced weight issue

Post by MZ826 » Tue Jan 18, 2011 10:18 am

i have been trying to fix the tail heavy issue of the fov p-39 and am not having much luck. I have removed the factory nose weight and added heavier material and this thing is still popin wheelies. What have other people done to get it to sit properly? I have resorted to a thin thread behind a propeller blade pinned to the shelf.

Thanks in advance,
Graeme

Assuming my plane's landing gear are inserted correctly (pegs fully in the holes and so on) and the plane is sitting on a flat surface, it will sit correctly. Mind you, it will not take much for it to rock back on its tail, but it will sit on the gear without issue :wink:
