It was for sure the trilerons, after gluing them to the wing I had no issues what so ever.

Looking good Blitzu. Similar to what I have done for mine but for a Mega. Out of curiosity, how are you going to locate where to drill through the fuselage to be able to put your retaining screws in? Grub screws with a point, screwed in from the inside so it makes a witness mark?

I glued mine in and then tapped through both parts while it was together so I wouldn't get the holes in the wrong position. Using M2 grubscrews to hold on the removable mount.

Heya Tomooska-I was going to do the alloy mount about a year and a half ago (post #2125) but got myself into some financial trouble...things are slowly coming rite now,6 more weeks and I'll be back in the green

I know where I want the mount to sit,so will drill one hole in fuse, then grub screw the inner/outer ring together with x3 grub screws and nothing in the 4th hole.Then bolt motor to the mount,then insert into fuse and put one countersunk screw through the hole in fuse and into the mount.Then get all my thust angles rite and tac glue mount to fuse,then carefully useing verniers/dividers work out where my other holes are.Dril thou fuse with tiny drill to make sure I have the other x3 hole locations rite,then enlarge holes,unscrew grubs out though holes,make holes larger for countersunk screws and hey presto-done.......easier said than done thou...

I thought about doing it the way you described,but don't think I'd be able to get motor angles exactly rite(the mounts about 25mm in from start of fuse),and my drill holes (especially in the inner mount) in exactly the rite place,and also to try and get the gap between mtr and fuse wall the same (where the motor exits the fuse) so it doesn't look cock-eyed...
Hope all that makes sense...?
But will let you know how it all goes in a few weeks when I can afford some glue.... ... yip still broke as!

Excellent mounts guys wish I had access to machine equipment for this type of work.
What mega motor are you thinking of mounting?

Savneo, I'll be using a 16/45/2CE F5D that will be here in a few days. Got a couple of options with regards to props and cell count.

That was alot easier than I thought! And I used the eye-o'meter to get the fuse holes in exactly the rite place-NICE,WRAPPED AS!
Only bolted at this stage till I get some epoxy,as it is thou,0 on the thrust line and a tad of right thrust,one happy camper!
Beer time now...

Took long enough, though. I've been so busy with family things and a thing called winter a few months ago. Lol

Using a trimmed to 6.5, 7x10 apc sport prop.
