Hi, I recently replaced my bungee cord system with the new Oleo Strut. I like it but.... flying it for the first time today, the airplane did not fly well. The ball did not stay in the center. I had to give it constant left rudder. The plane was skidding to the left. (felt like it was out of rigging) I will adjust the rudder pedal cables. Has anyone experienced this? Any solution? Thanks in advance. N602ZA Robert

Hi robert
The most obvious solution to me sounds like you don’t have your nose wheel pointed straight
If it’s skewed at an angle in flight it would exhibit the symptoms to describe
There are threaded adjustment on the tie rods to get the nose wheel straight
If it’s the Zenith unit, give them a call to get more info
