So does it still fit (without modification) the motor mount that you ship with the crashtesthobby planes?
Are you using one and if so what do you think?
In a pusher configuration we have never had any trouble with just using two bolts on the motor but in the Hercules Gentle Giant puller configuration there will be a lot more force on the bolts and we decided to update the mount to the Hercules standards. I'm not worried about the strength of the stainless steel motor mounts but the aluminum casing in the forward mount.

So ........... We are getting a 4 bolt pattern in the new updated motor mounts that will fit the CF3530 KV 1100/1400/1700 motors. The blue motor uses a different bolt pattern and will fit two of the holes but not all 4 so it won't be any weaker than it already is on the old design.

Lee,

Where can I get more ez connectors for that size rod? I feel like ez connectors on the servos will help fix some of the elevon slop. I kept her in the air today. That's all that matters.

Lee,

We flew again last night at a new field. There is a large walnut tree next to our runway, you just have to be careful. Well, I dicided a high speed pass would thrill the crowd. Oops! Right smack into the tree in a high speed dive! Sheard off a 1/2" branch and dozens of walnuts rained down. I went over, removed the branch and launched my reaper. My neighbor who has yet to start his allowed as maybe he need to get it flying! That was some testiment to their durability.

Right after that, I let a new guy fly it to show him how easy it is. He flew it into the ground. Had to re-tape a fin. Gotta love it!
