Does anybody know what type of material is used for the motor mount, and where can I get some? Seems to be some sort of thin fiberglass, I don't know. I keep knockin' mine off due to rough landings (attempted landings I should say) Thanks

It looks like tempered fibergless. The type used on pprinted cirquit boards.

If the motor mount is still in good shape, take some 1/8 0r 3/16 stock and laminate the motor mount with a piece fore and aft of it. glue with ca and it should hold.

I'd modify the motor mount so that the motor is held by rubber bands. In this way rough landings just pop the motor out of position with no damage. I did this with my Mini Pleaser after breaking the motor mount many times. Works fine!

I broke off the mount on my Pleaser 400 and just CA'd it back on. Since nothing else really breaks when it comes off (e.g.fusalage tube, motor mount, prop or motor), I would just keep gluing it back on since it takes less than a minute.
