Corsair motor mount

Hi all, I would like to change the type of brushless fixing in my corsair. I would like to leave the fixing on the 10 x 10 wooden stick im because it has become too soft. What do you recommend to me?
Photos are appreciated.
Regards

Shocking!!!

Sorry for the delay, but you probably already did the test flight...How'd it go?

Startrek66, if I were you I would cut out the old stick and just add a new one. Any old wood is fine for what we are doing. I do recommend the 38mm GWS stick mount over the 28mm one for any model. The 38mm mount is many times more robust.

Quiz, the glider has yet to go up my friend. Just worked out the electronic quarks last night.

Quizcat, I finely got around to taking the big bird out for a maiden. With a 5000mah 4s battery it will fly for hours. With a 15 second power on zoom to a few thousand feet even with no lift it is a slow sled ride back down. It is very responsive to even the tinniest amount of lift. Aerobatic it is not but fun to fly around inverted from time to time

Slow and Smooooooth...

That thing is huge...Nice to hear it was enjoyable to fly!!! That's cool that once you get it up there, it just floats back nice and slow.

LOL, I had to blow up the photo of your vehicle just to see if I was imagining something. From the small photo, it looked like there's a pirate's deadhead or a skull or something in your grill When I saw that, I thought, naw, can't be...LOL!

That was funny Quiz That gives me ideas of more crap I can bolt to my SUV. Heck there is a axe, high lift jack and a shovel in the roof rack already

The plane because of its size adds a new challenge to flying at the school yard. With other planes I fly in and around all kinds of obstacles, this thing is a little less forgiving of flying through the goal posts.

Yeah, you would have to anticipate things way in advance of "needing" to do something rash while in flight...no turning on a dime.

Ok Guys, its getting way to cold to fly a glider around for what seams like hours anymore. It is time to start building and flying some little short flight warbirds. I couldn't help myself and had to order two more GWS P40's.

I thought you were less than happy with your P40.

Rick I have had a love hate relationship on and off with the GWS EPO P40 for some time now. The airframe is as solid as they come and as rugged as nails. Where it is lacking for me is that it is not a friendly park flier built to any resemblance of spec. If built for slow flight it will tip stall and spin in with zero heads up. If flown to fast it will shudder and go into a high speed stall. If flown around the field at a modest speed like say 25 mph to 60 mph one is fine. I tend to fly on the extremes of slow and fast so the P40 I need to behave myself. It is a great model just not well suited to how I fly.

Rick, watching your videos I bet you would have a blast flying a powered sailplane. You tend to fly smoothly and a sailplane would complement that very well. Here is a video I made a week back or so with a 80" sailplane that you could fly the wings off of. What I get the biggest kick out of this sailplane is that with a 2200mah 3s battery I can fly for hours with good lift. In dead air and fooling around on the prop I can fly for well over half an hour on the same battery.
