motor mount mod
Ok... I may be making a mistake.. but I love those little stick mounts for foamies. Less than 2 dollars and it makes it really easy to swap out motors when I am experimenting. SO.... I went ahead and made a plywood doubler for the firewall.. but I also made a plywood doubler for the horizontal brace as well. I cut a slot in the firewall the width of the stick mount, Cut off about an inch from the mount... Drilled some pilot holes and screwed the mount into the horizontal brace with the plywood. It seems fairly solid with just a minor amount of added weight. And this will allow for me to easily swap out motors. Anyone see any problems with this set up?
