    Twin set up chew on this..............

    I forget the number but its Futabas latest one that cranks out 340 oz, my rudder blade is of good size and length, it turns easily, even ifI choose to rail the buoys. Im pretty sure a touch of tow in on the inside sponson will fix it, Ive periodically needed to do this to the many Eagles Ive owned and raced. I was mostly curious if people were finding if there was any difference in the prop walk of a set of 1667s vs the new style props. I always set my Eagles up to give me fairly responsive left turn correction capabilities but found with this Twin it fought me more than I like. Ive watched Allen Yuen over the last couple of years battle the same issue and he loses a lot of speed while he does so. I try to tune my ride to a more compliant ride so that I dont scrub off speed while Im fixing a driving error or avoiding a race course hazard. Ill get there, just takes more testing and tuning. I found no noticeable difference in prop walk between a 1667 style prop to a 19 degree rake ABC prop

    There are plenty of rumours on how to stop a twin pulling in to the course, I think I have tested most. The most effective is adding toe-in to the inside sponson. The trade off is the boat not tracking straight while going slow. I have also tried adding a little more angle of attack to the inside sponson, strut adjustments, prop sizes. I have even tried graphite paint on the inside sponson and none of the above made no noticeable difference. By saying no noticeable difference, meaning I wasn't able to take any of the left trim out of the rudder and still have the boat track straight.
