I have converted one of their 53" Cessna 182's to sp600 and a GP 2.5 gearbox. I am waiting for the wind and/or rain to stop so I can fly it. I made my own firewall out of 1/4" lite ply and some rectangular stock and use a hose clamp to attach the motor. i also converted it to a taildragger.

I want to try one of their 1/2a Cessna i80's next with a sp400 and 7 cells.

I have an old Cox RTF Centurion 210 { made by Kyosho } that I have powered with a sp400 using a motor mount sold by Hobby Lobby. This is a white plastic firewall mount that is also available with a gearbox but HL's price with the gb & motor is way too high { over $50.00!}. Dymond has the same mount/gb combo for about $15.00 less. The direct drive 400 with a Gunther prop propells the Cox Cessna very well and I am hoping the Sure Flite Cessna does as good.
