Arrowind 2820

The Arrowind 2820 is larger in diameter than the Turnigy 3542 and the Eflite 25, therefore the motor mount is also larger - too large for some of newer designed EF-1 planes. One solution is to use the mount that comes with the Eflite 25. But if you don't happen to have one of those, try this: cut the ends off the Arrowind mount and use a small round file to change the bolt holes into slots. Then this motor is easily interchangable with the other two approved motors.

Tom Nice work, great colour scheme. Are guys going to have the planes all judged, to see who gets the number 1, in each round?

Kevin,

I am not sure what you are saying. I will be at the booth all three days, and I plan on my airplanes being there the entire time as well.

George,

Great idea on the modifying the mount. You can also use this:

These mounts are made with vents same as the Arrowind mount. I will have some @ Toledo this weekend.
