Come one you know! It's when you hold your beer as far as you can from you mouth until you splash yourself. That's how you find your range lol

You got that right!!! But, I don't think it's going to be as long as they say....and I sent mine in two hours after getting the original advisory....so, I "may" be getting mine back, next week, or the following week.

That's why you need to have multiple 3DHS airframes ready to go at all times! It's that old eggs in one basket thing...

72 extra electric mounting

Did they change something on these. I have the Motrofly 4325 with the longest spacers in the kit, and the gap is still shy another 1.5 inches. I don't know if the mount would even be that strong at 3.5 inches. Am I missing something?

Ya the updated versions had a shorter firewall for the updated rear carb DLE30. With some metal spacers from psp or something like that and a couple high quality bolts should be no issue.

So apparently, I'm the first one to try the super long extended mount on electric. However, now I still need to find super long (high quality bolts) to match the blind nuts I already installed and find more spacers. Fun!

Check fastenahl, great bolts and then get some nylock nuts and some fender washers and it will be easy

That's great and all. It won't get me flying today though. I'm not a patient person. Fastenal is only open during the business week.
thanks for the suggestions though. The RSP stuff looks interesting.

You have any home depots/lowes/hardware store close? You should be able to get bolts at minimum nylon spacers and the nylock nuts at a place like that. Just get a few bigger washers to spread the load out if you go with some buts vs the blind nuts.

Prozac, I'm using the same motor as you, and I had to use a 8-32 threaded rod and lock nuts with washers on both ends. I think I cut the threaded rod at a little less than 5 inches long, and I used spacers from previous builds and cut them to length. spanning the distance hasn't posed any problems for me, as far as strength goes.

All that said, I flew my extra as an electric for the last time yesterday. Pullin out the power system for use in the 71" Slick, and makin the Extra a gasser. I have to keep the 330 flyable because it IS the best precision/3D plane that I own. I even ran it through some weeds (in flight/landing) that were 3 ft. tall. Slowed me down a bit, but luckily I made it with out dumping it.

No, the DLE30 got longer about a year ago, the usual way of making extra-long fasteners is all-thread.
