Pico Motor Mount

I've searched high and low and can't seem to find what I'm looking for. I want to use an E-flite motor on my Pico

Does anyone know where I can find a motor mount for the Pico Slow Stick, so I can use an E-flite motor on it?

Or, any suggestions on how to modify an existing mm to fit a Pico stick?

You'd have to refer the size of your E-flite motor to the mounts, and Pico Stick's boom as well. The boom is quite thin one, so it's easy to add something for fitting any given mount. ie. GWS 20mm or 28mm ones. http://www.caliberhobby.com/motors_mounts.html

Thanks for the suggestion Chen, but both the GWS ones (if not already discontinued) and the E-flite 1915 & 1916s are made for the full-size slow stick (10mm) - not the Pico version.

I was just hoping that someone has come across something specifically made for the Pico Slow Stick as far as a mount.

Anyone? Anyone?

If I recall it correctly that the boom of Pico Stick is 7.7 x 5mm, while the mentioned mounts are all 10mm square ones, probably the easiest way would be glueing some pieces of balsa pieces or even the coffee stirs to the boom to make it fitting the 10mm hole of the mounts.

I'm afraid that it's hard to find out any mounts fitting the 7.7 x 5mm boom. Just my two cents.

AKPilot, I'm in the same boat as you. But instead of an eflite motor, I'm looking to use a generic brushless outrunner motor. So any luck on your end?
