there are four holes in each corner of the back of the tray that work perfect for holding wing bolts I used to of them for my servo clips and the other two for my wing bolts, try it out

FWIW, I always put the wing bolts in the wings (I think Ben taught me that one).

This makes it super easy with one hand to plug and unplug the servos from each aileron

OR, you could attach the end of the servo connector on the end of the wing with the small ply tabs that are attached to the string used to pull the servo extensions

Got my Slick today.....which was in record time for something coming from across the border. Unfortunately the United Postal Smashers smashed the canopy pretty good. Rob at ADCHobbyStore.com is already taking care of it though, so I just want to send a Big Thank You! out to Rob. I've dealt with other vendors in the past that have left me hanging, so I really appreciate the great service from Rob and Ben.

Mounting a Neu 1512 2D P32 in the 70" Slick

As some of you may know I prefer to use Inrunners in my larger planes, I was going to fit a Hyperion 4025-14 in the 70" Slick originally but peer pressure and pride forced me to go with a Neu .

The Slick presents a bit of a problem if you want to go with a geared Inrunner due to the short Firewall to spinner distance, ideal for PNP Outrunner's that the Slick was designed for but not so easy to accommodate a geared Neu.

I wanted to use commonly available components and basic hand tools so that anyone could duplicate my install. All the parts were ordered from Tower Hobbies or Horizon ( including the G10) and only basic hand tools were use during fabrication (Dremel, cordless drill, screwdriver). I think I paid about $50 for all the materials I needed, the G10 fiberglass sheet was the most expensive purchase at around $32 from Tower (stock# LXA272) but enough material was left to make another half dozen mounts. I also bought 2 packs of threaded inserts (stock# LXE070) and 2 packs of Carbon fiber tube from Horizon (stock# EFLM1960), these along with the threaded inserts are used to make the motor mount spacers.

I first measured the distance from the firewall and the front of the cowl, that being the distance I needed from the back of the mounting plate to the prop driver face. I then measured the distance from the rear of the motor to the prop driver face to determine the difference. The G10 plate was 2.5mm thick X2 so I had to take that into account too.

The Carbon tubes were then cut to length and the threaded inserts ground to fit the inside of the tubes and glued in place with 1 Hr Epoxy. The front and back mounting plates were drilled for the motor mounting screws and fire wall mounting bolts and the inner holes dremeled out to fit the front of the gearbox and the motor case. The firewall center hole was enlarged to accommodate the rear of the motor and new mounting holes drilled. Once the epoxy had set the mount was assembled and the motor attached, a test fit proved that I'd measured correctly , so everything was mounted up ready to go.

RTF weight is right at 9lbs 1oz with a Hyperion 4350mAh 6s pack. I ran up the motor in the basement but only made it to half throttle before things started flying off shelves! The maiden will have to wait until the weather clears up in Kentucky, I'm thinking that the power will be adequate.

So if you have ever wanted to try an Inrunner but didn't know how, you've one less excuse now! Hope this is useful for some folk, if you have any question feel free to ask.

Super slick (no pun intended) installation Mike. Can't wait to hear the flight report. Have you tried getting Steve to offer a mount like this for all of his motors? That would go a long way towards converting guys over to inrunners.
