I almost finished my Stearman. I cut about 1/2 inches out of the middle of the wooden motor mount box and glued it back together using 1/4 by 1/4 inch pine blocks in the inside corners and little pieces of plywood on the outside sides. This made room for an Eflight power 10. The recommended motor is slightly weaker than a 480 size (according to Scorpion's comparison chart). The rudder control rod tube has a sharp bend in the last 3 inches at the tail of the plane and causes the rod to bind. I pulled it with a spring scale and it takes 6 oz to move it. Elevator rod moves freely. Did you notice your rudder rod binds?
