Congrats

My two girls ages 2 & 4 have brought me some of the best memories in my life.
I don't think you know true love until you have a child.
Enjoy the journey.

use a shim

I have been working on my canopy and found the same issue.
I used a thin shim under the canopy skin at the straight section between each hinge. Works great now.

Ted Hendrickson prop

I have one on my RV4. The prop is very well made with about twice the laminations of other wood props. The one I have is more of a climb prop attached to a 160hp 0-320.
