GWS Motor stick size?

Looking for dimensions needed to mount the GWS 300 sized GB


Or, in other words... what size is the Slow Stick fuse?


TIA,

Thanks too much... Now to find something comparable at the local home depot / lowes

Or am I just going to have to cut something down?

I'm actually looking for stock to make a few slow stick thrust mods and then have leftovers (lots of leftovers) for a few new FFF planes.

Thanks again,
mike s.

you won't find the fuse stick at any home depot's type store, they are all 3/8, www.allerc.com carry's them for about 4.50 ea, I hunted on the internet and found 2 or 3 companies that sold MM, one was 30 miles from me and only sold by the hundreds of feet, another one sold them in 20 ft length's but it was near what dave sells them for by the foot.
Another thing Dave at allerc.com sells is the plastic parts kit for 2.25 which contain's the wing mount's and things that slide on the Fuse that you can't make unless you have a lot of time
By the way the above 2 things I think are under airplanes kits, look close took me awhile to find them
they are on page 3

he has cowling and parts kits for a lot of the gws, a lot of them don't have pitchurs so you have to read the descriptions

You can get the 3/8" stock about anywhere, laminate 2 "popsicle" sticks with epoxy, let dry, plane or sand to fit. Easy, cheap, and has worked great for me.

I picked up a 24" long square Basswood stick at a Michael's Craft Store that I've been using for all my Bluecor builds. Fits nice, it was only a buck or two.

Jimsky has the right idea. The wood stick is just a tad under 10 MM. By itself it is a bit sloppy, but wrap one time with 3/4 masking tape and you have a perfect snug fit. I forgot the price, but it was only a fraction of what GWS vendors are asking. Gud Flying....Dick

Between Seawolf's popsicle stick idea, and jimsky's basswood stick from Michaels...

I think I've got the information that I need.

Thanks guys... This is exactly what I was hoping for.
