Well, I don't know how hot those inrunners can become, and don't now the heat tolerance of the foam either. So, to be on the safe side, I will try and make some airflow clearance in the nacelle.

Mike: I will definitely use your idea of a piece of CF as motor retainer. Thanks.
Jürgen: Your PicoJet and TwinJet both look astonishing. The leading edge "metal" piece is so realistic. And classy. I might decide to steal the idea. :P

The foam does carry some loads especially compression loads.

Like I said,the foam in a sheeted wing does not carry anywhere near the same % of wing loading as the foam in/on a foamy a/c such as we're discussing here.

On my TwinJet,I opened the 'ducts' in the front of the motor nacelles to near circular cross section (aimed the carbide dremel bit down into the wing to keep the nacelle surround sufficently thick in cross section).That dumped a Lot of air across the brushes on the Speed 480 welder motors.
Glued them directly to the elepor w/ thick CA after aligning the thrust angle with the wing centerline.
Worked a peach.In fact I had to dig the motors out of the nacelles after the TJ ...Umm, expired. 8-)

Elapor will bister around 100*C...but unless you're over-propping your motor, you shouldnt get that hot.

My all time favorite is the Multiplex Stuntman. I flew one into the grave but have kept a spare kit.

Quite different flight characteristics, but very stable and docile.

This one was a wall hanger at a friend’s house for a few years. I showed interest in it every time I saw it. He brought it over to my house over a year ago..where it hung on my wall till last week.
Photo below has motors mounted and servos hooked up. This week I got the esc’s wired up, control throws and CG set. Ready to fly Sunday.

Mike, thanks. Yours truly is a purist scheme. I like it.
MultiWii2XS, post some photos when your SL is airborn.

Nice to see these birds are still out and flying.

Well how bout this golden oldie. Got it from a flying bud who happened to have two of em NIB for spares.

Added electric retracts that fold up into the engine cowls like they should. And changed the cargo bay into a powder drop system.
