And the build goes on. Motor mount is thin aluminum scrap from a old electronics case. I had a 2foot by 3 foot piece of it and it is about 1/16th of and inch thick.
Cut the slot in the wing for the mount so the mount would just touch the spar it was 3 and 1/2 inches long and 2 inches wide, I bent the 90 in it at 2 and 1/4 inches and drilled the 3 holes 2 for mounting and 1 for the shaft. Very simple mount
I then used goop to glue the mount to the wing i use a popsical stick to push the goop to the bottom of the slot and then work the mount in and out a bit till the goop is all over the slot and the mount.
put it all in the saddle and lay some wieght on it, after about an hour i scrap all the goop that has ozzed out off of the wing and the mount and put it back under the wieght till dry.
