Default Need help with motor mount for Turngy motor

I bought this motor: http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...idProduct=2111

I'm planning on putting it on a GWS Beaver, and I have some of the stick mounts that I use for the TowerPro bell motors that are similar, but they're all too small to accommodate this motor (I wrongly assumed they'd fit). Anyways, does anyone have a link to a stick mount that will work with this motor? Thanks.

Also, you can epoxy a piece of plywood slightly larger than the motor mount onto your tower pro bell motor stick mounts, drill a hole in the middle for shaft relief and drill some mounting holes, use 1/8" ply or larger,sand the stick mount so it has a rough finish where the epoxy goes, hope that helps, Chellie

I have done that, and it works great

Thanks for the links and advice. But I think I found a mount that might work: http://www.headsuprc.com/servlet/the...unt-for/Detail

I hadn't seen this one on Jeff's site, but I measured the turnigy one, and its 10mm in diameter, so hopefully this will work. If not, then I'll do the plywood method you suggested Chellie. Guess I just needed to look harder.

I saw that too on Jeffs site but i did not know what the size of the mounting was on your turnigy motor, so I did not suggest it, use some JB weld on that mount, where it slips together at, that will help to keep the motor from turning in the stick mount and pulling the wires off the motor, its happened to me so I am aware of that problem and cure Take care and have fun, Chellie

OK, I'll definitely do that then! Thanks for the tip.
