When it's all working, this will be the plane where I learned (the hard way) how to select the right power system for a model. I always intended it to be my 2nd trainer so I suppose I should think of...

Yeah, point taken. The holes in the mount are for M2 bolts, but I was already thinking of drilling them out to fit M3. It hugely increases my options in terms of what I can buy and where I can buy...

Hey thanks for the tip on the motor mount, it's a nice guide you've written! However the front of the MUS is just a flat plywood plate firewall with holes drilled in it for the motor bolts. I don't...

The first flight was with the 3S A123 pack and an APCe 8x6 and it went well! Performance was definitely...

Reading the specs in the instruction sheet for the ESC, it says this ESC can do 30A continuous and 35A max. So it seems that even a 32A initial spike isn't going over the limit.

It didn't go well.

The plane flew for about a minute and then the ESC cut out. Thankfully I use a separate BEC so I didn't lose radio contact. Even though I didn't quite make it back to the field...

Well it looks like the motor is OK. After putting the motor base back together, and using some thread lock to ensure it stayed that way, I ran another power test and everything seems OK.

When the...

When I tried to fit the TP 2409-12 motor, the supplied screws (M2x5mm) were not long enough to reach all the way through the motor mount and firewall so I haven't been able to do anything about it...

Sorry, you didn't mention the brand or supplier and I thought it looked like an Align brand model number.
