Here is my current thoughts on motor mounting in sketch form. Essentially, I have to believe that the front face that mates against the spinner has the correct thrust angles - otherwise you would have to have an uneven gap which would be rubbish.

So I would mount my motor to this on four bolts going to either the normal bolting points or more likely to a custom heatsink. I have been thinking quite seriously about mounting a small fan on the section of shaft protuding inside the aircraft for further cooling. This could either blow onto the motor or be ducted rearwards and out.

The mounting bolts would allow the angle and placement of the motor to move infinitely within a certain range.

Kahloq - if the motor you ordered has been proven to work then I am getting that one too!
