AXI's with backplate mounting!

I just saw these at aircraftworld. http://aircraft-world.com/proddetail...130-20&from=26
They look really cool. I also saw some new Mega outrunners. Has anybody used these yet? What size airplane would be good for it? Something like a 4Star 90?

I'm a bit surprised that no one has yet commented on the rear mount Axi's. I don't have an Axi, but one of the best features of my Actro is the rear mount. It makes it a snap to use as a conversion from wet power to electric, especially on ARF's. Using simple stand-offs, you can mount the motor to the existing firewall the same as you would a gas motor.

They seem to be rated for up to about 1,000 watts. I wonder how far they can be pushed beyond that. Should be good motors for most applications including scale and aerobatics.

I came back from NEAT with the rear mount setup for the big AXIs and I've had a 4120/14 for a bit.....

Hey Norm, guess what goes in the ol' faithful LT-25 next? 15X10 direct drive on 3s4P Thunderpower..... should go straight up silently....

Are you talking about the "radial mount" set?

Unfortunately, it came along too little too late for my setup. Would've been nice to have. Doesn't matter, my 4120's rear case isn't drilled for the prop shaft anyway

Hi Bernard, you're sure getting a lot of mileage out of that old LT-25. I've been flying mine a bit recently also. I find it kind of relaxing. Be sure and let us know how the big AXI works out. I'll bet it's going to be a great combination.

Is there a rear mount available for the Axi 2814/10? Any solutions to this problem. Seems this is an ideal outrunner for my standard Lazy Bee but an internal mounting is impossible. Thanks, guys.

Right now they're only available for the 4120 and 4130 series, but there being so well accepted I think you may see them soon for the other sizes. Unfortunately it does required a different drilled case, so they can't really be used for the older case motors.

We'll also be seeing some small rotators (smaller than the 2808 series) coming from Model Motors within the next month or so, don't have the specs yet, but they were showing them at the Prague show.

Thanks Azarr. I'll wait them out and if nothing evolves I imagine a "U" shaped aluminum mount could be fabricated or the case drilled and tapped...but not by me :-)

There is an L-shaped plastic speed 600 mount made by Aeronaut that will do what you want Alan. I flew my Big T using one on a 2820/10 for about a year before I cooked it running the motor at 400W and it got soft. For your Lazy Bee application it should be just fine. Hobby Lobby has them.

Here is a picture of the Aeronaut mounts. I haven't tried it myself, but have been told by a couple of users that they work fine.



Available from Hobby Lobby and I'm sure other places as well.
