i have a electrifly rimfire GPM4570 brushelss outrunner i would like to take out of my Cox cessna 182 skylane (Yes it is a brushless conversion) :-) and install it on my GP yak 55 so basically what i need is a brushless stick mount with a 10mm hole and a tri bolt pattern for the motor. im having a hell of a time trying to find something that will work. i thought about buying the one eflite makes and making a simple adapter plate out of bass wood that was kind of as a last resort method.
im really suprised that GP dosent make a mount for this plane that will work! ive heard of peeps that have done brushless conversions on this plane! so some ideas are welcome. moneys kind of tight right now so i need to work with what i have.. (buying another motor is out of the question) im open to any ideas anyone has
