Looking great JaggedEdge! I'm interested in seeing your motor mount set-up in pic #2 above. This is my first outrunner-powered foamie, and I tried mounting the motor the way I've seen countless other people do it. But whether I use epoxy or Gorilla Glue, more than half the time I land, the motor mount rips out. Not sure of it's my landing style or the mounting style, but I never had that problem with my geared inrunner foamies with stick mounts. Maybe I need to add more foam to the mounting area for more gluing surface?

Here are 2 pics from this weekend, showing the launch. Unfortunately, a gust wind came up right on launch. I didn't increase throttle fast enough and it got "pushed" into the ground. I think I might go ahead and build a new one.
