E-Flite Park 250 for Dumas Waco Are

I'm not sure if anyone has ever posted this question before, but I am building one of my first electric kits. After building several Dumas free flight kits I decided to stay with something that I am somewhat familiar with building an electric Dumas Waco ARE. My question has to do with the power plant and the best way to mount it. It looks like when this kit was designed it was made to be used with a gear drive type system. After studying a little bit I think I'm going to go with the E-flite Park 250. My question is does anyone know the best way to mount this? Should I somehow extend the firewall and mount the motor directly to it, or build the airplane just like the plans and somehow mount it to the stick type mount coming out of the firewall. I know that they also make a carbon mounting rod for this motor that I thought about substituting for the wood dowel that is in the kit to mount with. I sure would appreciate any suggestions and pics of other brushless outrunners mounted in Dumas/Tritle kits.

Two examples of stick mount adapters for outrunner motors. Most motors will fit the mounting patterns on these. E-Flite's website may have a drawing of their motor, or at least the mounting pattern.

These are exactly what I am looking for Mike! Thank you! This way I won't have to alter the plans any what so ever which is the last thing I need to be doing on one of my first electric builds.

No problem. Post a picture or two when you get it built or as you build.
