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.
I'm using this mount with the AXI on a failed experiment. It is very sturdy, but I guess it could be mounted on a break away plate. What plane are you flying and how do you like performance of the AXI? Are you running 12 cells?
thanks, Bill
