Default Hangar 9 CAP 232 electric conversion question...

Hi all!

So I recently acquired a NIB Hangar 9 CAP 232 that I am going to convert to electric. Everything is very straightforward but I have a question regarding the mounting of my Tacon Bigfoot 160 brushless.

I have seen people using standoffs for mounting but for a motor this big? What would you recommend? I have not yet figured out how long of standoffs I need but a source/product link would give me a starting point.

Thanks!

Don

I've used standoffs and the cage mount style. As long as they are not super long it should be ok. I've used 3"on a 1.20 size on 8s, no problems
