This is all up weight, including batteries. If you are running 12 cells, try a 10 or 11-6. With 35-40 amps this puts the output in the 300-400 range. This is pretty near the limit for this motor and you may not want to run wot all the time, and lots of cooling air.

I run folding props so the motor doesn't risk damage on landings. It sounds like the motor mount isn't gonna have any give. I don't see how you mount this using a gas plane mount. I would firewall mount the motor, or else behind a 1/8 plywood epoxied to the front of the plane behind the spinner. Be sure to keep the wires away from the spinning case of the motor, which is the rotor in an outrunner motor.
