Default Mounting AX1 motor

Hi. I have been searching the web site's for a picture of the mounting no luck so far. Maybe this will help.
1. Mount the so called X- plate on the motor end that the wires are coming out of.

2. Mount the motor on the plane, and check the clearance to the motor Assembly
3. Then mount the prop adapter, check for prop clearance.

I hope this helps somewhat! skyvolt12

The motor is back mounted. You will need one of these.

Hope to start my build soon with the same motor.
I asked a similar question recently at RCG. Here are a couple of pics that were posted in response. Note the reinforcement down the sides of the box mount. I will do the same.
