View Full Version : Alfa "Marie" motor help please.

I bought this plane with the recommended blue motor. I can't figure out how you are supposed to mount the motor though. Do you need to cut the cowl to let the motor through, or maybe mount the motor plate behind the firewall? With a front mount set-up as it appears in the schematic, the cowl will not fit on the plane.

Also, the motor has no wires. Do you simply solder three wires onto the three "spots" on the back of the motor? I have some ESC extensions left over from an E-flite part that should work OK. I just want to get my facts straight before I do something that I can't unwind.

Thanks. Andy

I flew this one already. Thanks. It was the motor recommended by Hobby Lobby. You had to flip the mounting bracket over.
