I mounted my Arrowind motor on the brodak mount and was disappointed to find the prop adapter doesn't clear the cowl. I thought the Arrowind was a direct bolt in with no need for spacers.

Anyone else using the Arrowind ? Did you need spacers?

Yes, I used spacers, even with a flat back spinner. Takes another extra spacer if your spinner is something like a DuBro that extends back from the back plate mount. The HK EF-1 motor also needs a spacer or two. Spacers are not that big of a problem though. I have some extra left over from a Proud Bird, and I use them as templates to make spacers from 1/32" ply up to 1/4" ply as necessary. That gives you the ability to customize your spinner spacing to your heart's content. Sometimes have to grab the correct length mounting bolts though.

Keep in mind it was designed around not only the Arrowind motor, but also the EFlite aluminum spinner. It works perfectly with that, anything else will have to be custom fit.

OK, I have an E-Flite spinner, so I'll give it a try. Thanks.

Thanks Zonker for the spacer tips.

With my T3025-1500 and Graupner spinner I needed 1/8" spacers, I made them on my lathe from aluminium.
I could still use the stock mounting screws.
