Motor mount

The provided motor mount plywood accepts blind nuts on the back for an outrunner's radial mount. The hole locations worked perfectly for the motor I used. One side of the ply mount top and bottom has small holes drilled in for identification. The holes go on the right side of the mount. It's hard to see it but the instructions claim there's an "offset" built into the mount if installed this way. I used fast cure, white gorilla glue for this.
The ESC gets mounted in a cutout in the bottom of the fuse. I'm not sure I like this idea since there's no landing gear on this plane and this is right where belly landing forces will contact, but I thought I'd try it before making any changes. The ESC's throttle wire then goes through a hole into the wing saddle and then up through a precut hole to the canopy area. I like how despite being essentially a profile plane, that all the wires are hidden. Makes for a clean look.
