Prop Location For Pattern Plane Conversion
It looks like my next plane will be a pattern plane conversion from glow to electric.
My question is related to mounting the motor. I assume that I should mount the motor so that the prop would be in the same location as it would have been had an engine been used. I assume that the distance from the prop to the wing makes a difference for a pattern plane.
Thanks in advance
Yes it should follow the exact same line as the other engine for the same characteristics. Same angles as well - but suspect it is 0deg/0deg as most pattern planes are.
But again you should NOT change the thrust line due to electric - the plane has no idea what is spinning the prop anyway. :)
