The adapter mounts the motor and spaces out for the brushless motor. This plane came with a geared motor. I had to add a 3/16 wood plate to get the correct distance for the cowl. The washers = thrust angle.

Default Aero Craft Small Stick

Some pics of a Small Stick. Really nice & complete laser cut kit that assembled very easily. Vinyl graphics by Bad Brad Graphics made trimming the overall red Monokote a snap. Jeff advised what motor (2826-14) to use and of course it works beautifully. Lots of fun at WOT and cruises at 1/2 throttle for a long time. Thanks Jeff!

Hi Henry! The plans are for my (partially built) Aero Craft Apache, no longer made. A good eBay find. It looks kinda like a 'sport' P-51. Will have a Power 10 (sorry Jeff) and retracts. Gino PS. The hatch fits fine

Glad the hatch fits. Happy flying. I still have many kits stored that I hope to live long enough to build. Soon to post pictures of my senior telemaster with an 8 ft WS, Also got my E Flite PT 19 flying. Really like it. Did you see my crash? Look under Crash Forum.

I posted an earlier picture of my HURC outfitted P-40F, but this gives you a better idea of the the finished product and the nifty little motor mount I cobbled together for it out of 1/8" ply, aluminum screws, and plastic nuts. Like similar mounts (AlexinFlight comes to mind), this one can be easily adjusted.
Oh yes, I have a Fairchild PT-19 in the final stages that is all HURC equipped. I will post when I have it together.

Hey James (just checking in), thanks for the compliments. I have gotten some great advice here on WattFlyer, so I am always willing to contribute something when I can. Guys like you make this hobby worth being in- that is not butter I am spreading. Oh, I am going to get that P-47 back in the air soon- need to heat form a new cowl to replace the cracked one.

Just replaced a factory stock PZ F4U-4 Corsairs' bent shaft 480 with one of the Heads Up 480+motors. Took only a few munutes to knock out an adaptor from a piece of sheet metal. What was nice is the plane still has the same CoG without having to move anything around.

Should get to fly it on Tuesday.

Have 2 BiPlanes with Heads Up motors, SPAD XIII, Albatross DIII & a Fokker TriPlane DrI, found them to be an excellent value.

Finished my PZ Spitfire Heads Up conversion a week ago. The reason for the
conversion is the original brick's ESC smoked itself, so it was a good time
to convert to the Spectrum system and a better power plant.

These are the components from Heads Up :
Motor : 2826-11 Outrunner
ESC : 32A Power Up
Prop : 9x6E
Lipo : 3s 2200mah 25C Flightmax

Wattage/Amperage data measured with a SuperWhatt-meter.

1/2 throttle 6A 81watts
3/4 throttle 13A 160watts
Full throttle 19.5A 224watts

Interesting to note that the WOT readings were super close to Jeff's
data for that motor/prop/lipo.

Plane flies great !, use 1/2 to 3/4 throttle most of the time, WOT gives
almost unlimited vertical ! More than high enough for these tired eyes !!

Motor was put on a hand built mount from 2 pieces of 1/8 birch plywood,
and 4 nylon spacers from ACE. Put 3 washers in the upper right corner
of the mount for the offsets. See the pictures...

Bob

Smile MM EVA with HeadsUpRC Power

I used a 2830-11 Motor and a 20 Amp PowerUp ESC from HeadsUpRC. A GWS9050 prop is the best prop by far of the ones I've tried. Jeff recommended this prop with this motor of course.

Zero issues and about 50 or so flights so far. Lots of power to spare. Good power for the weight of the motor and ESC.

Another very satisfied customer!

More on my EVA is in a MM thread.

That ply motor mount looks familiar. Nice job. These disc-type mounts with bolts and nuts makes motor adjustment a simple proposition. The best part is if you want/need to swap out the motor, it takes less than a minute. I am seriously considering this type of mount for my E-Flite P-47; the stick mount on that model is problematic to me. I already use this type of motor mount on my P-40 (see above) and my latest build- Fairchild PT-19 Cornell. Headsuprc.com is a great place to do business.

Yep, stole the idea. I looked around all over for some flexable motor mounts
but none to be found that seemed to hit the spot. Since I am an amateur
woodworker I have plenty of tools and materials to make one and ACE had
just the right size spacers.
