And an extra washer on the top left will give you down & right thrust.

The mount on the Seniorita is symmetrical because the fire wall is built with down - right when the plane is assembled.

The extra washers in the picture are to get the proper cowl to spinner clearance.

Also, Thanks for the kind words Chellie & hope you had a Great Thanksgiving.

For micro motors, that should be ok with the hot glue, as the hot glue is very strong, but i would not try that on any bigger motors Take care, Chellie

Hey guys, I am setting up my first large electric plane. I had posted a question about the motor mount, because I thought it looked too flimsy. I was advised to not use it as is, and also to check this thread. Well, in this thread I have seen some photos of similar mounts. Now I am really confused!

your mount looks great KMOT, someone did not have enough information to advise you correctly before, just use the largest diam. screws that will fit your motor mount, and use locktite hope that helps, Chellie

I had posted this mount on the page before and generally like this type, but I think I need to add a little more. What I've found is if it's mounted on a wood stick the thrust angle can change a lot over time with simple wear-and-tear. 2-3 deg up or down. A hard landing can change it even more. Additional hard landings will continue to degrade the setup. I don't even mean a crash, but just hard landings or belly-flops for park fliers.

I only use aluminum sticks now and haven't seen any movement. The kind that come with something like the GWS SS.

Edit: Mount no longer made

Thank you Chellie.

The screws are 4x60mm, and I have decided to use nylon standoff's as well. I just set everything up and measured it, and I will be getting material to make 40mm standoff's.

I lied. I made wood standoff's instead of nylon.

I have a few just like it only using light gauge sheet metal with what looks to be the same size bolts.

Only thing I would suggest is another piece of wood or X mount in the middle, with a bolt front & back, to stiffen the long unsupported span of the bolts against motor torque.

Typically outrunners are short, fat and the outer case (magnets) rotates so you can only mount from the end. Inrunners are longer the case does not spin, but only the shaft.

Where do you guys buy your 10mm motors sticks? Either wood or aluminum. I've tried to shim-up 3/8" sticks but it doesn't work very well.

Here is what i do, and it works great, wrap some masking tape around the 3/8" stick so it fits the mount, and soak the wood and masking tape in some thin CA, it will be as hard as a rock and very strong, hope that helps, Chellie

Thanks. That sounds like a plan. I just went to two shops and neither have replacement GWS Slow Stick fuse so that's out. Plus my guy can't get the aluminum mount I showed a few posts back.

You all know I hate doing the huge circle of wood glued to the fuse with the large star mount. Plus it breaks off easy. I went through a couple poor designs. This is looking promising. 1/8 ply disk with 1/16 ply doublers. Th is just my plane template so it's not glued up yet.

I feel I've been taught a lesson here. That E-flight mount you and I like, they stopped making it. Then I found that aluminum mount I like, they stopped making it.

This type is mount chews into the fuse much less as well.

You could add triangular ply segments behind the disc to stiffen it up further (two on each side, from disc to plate, would do it).

My Best guess would be the motor is not feeding the esc the proper BEMF,because it got hurt in the crash, Since the ESC and Receiver have been already changed, or you might have a wire shorted out, between the receiver to the esc, hope that helps, Chellie

I don't care either but just don't use the production mounts I posted because they're no longer made.
