Thrust Adjustment noseblock by ZK-AUD on HPA

As promised here is how I will regulate the thrustline. Very simple - just a thin brass plate with 2 slots allowing a latitude of movement up and down and side to side.  The back of the nose plug is reinforced with 1mm ply and there is a small spruce insert for the screws to bed into.  The Peck bearing at the front is glued with RC 56 which just holds it in place but allows it to remain flexible.  As I have previously opined this is a much better sort of thing to spend your nose weight budget on than a heavy prop!

In picture #4 is another adjustable thrust solution by ZK-AUD...
