    Thrust Line Mod -- What is the bottom line?

    We are getting close to putting our engine back on and are wondering what the bottom line on the thrust line mod is from those who have flown it. Is it a good thing to do? Is it worth the money?

    JM, It is definetly something you want to consider before the paint job. I like it for landing with the 0-360.

    Absolutely! If your fuselage is right, and you understand what makes it work, it's easy to understand it's an improvement. It's going on mine.

    Call Mark at 907-373-3114. He's a straight shooter and will explain it to you.

    JMB,

    Check out the previous posts on the Thrustline thread. I went into detail on the intricacies of the change.

    Bottom line: Do it, IMHO.

    Wouldn't give mine up now. It greatly immproved the landing with my O-320.

    JMB - I wouldn't give up mine either and you won't find a better guy to do business with than Mark. Give him a call - he will tell you how to determine if it will work on your airplane or not.

    Here's the link to the other threads. First the big thread - Bob Breeden's posts are in this one:

    The other thread:

    Hope that helps.
