Super Decathlon Motor Mount

Angled straight here but as the tail rises, the motor ends up pointing slightly down

I have a park zone super decathlon(discontinued) and I’m wondering if the motor mount is correct.

While stationary, the motor seems to be straight in line with the rest of the plane but during takeoff, it seems to make the motor point down.

Any help on that to do is appreciated. Also I’m a novice in the hobby so not too sure if this is the way it is supposed to be.

Down and right thrust is normal
by: rcdude07

There is typically an amount of down and right thrust built into the firewall to offset engine torque. Sometimes it's as visible as in your picture, other times not as much. Best bet is to find the original manual and see what the thrust angles should be.
