Ben's words- But something to remember
Simple formula to keep in mind for electric 3D:
It takes about 150 watts per pound of airplane to 3D, and most experienced 3D pilots will want 180-200 watts/pound for excellent performance.
I have a custom cnc motor mount and have up graded the motor in my T-28... This was my first experience with electric and I was doing a lot of guessing. This is information I want to remember now that I'm all electric... Maybe a gaser in the future...

From my experiences with the T-28, I would recommend not using the CNC motor mount and I stick with the plastic ones that break.
The reason I choose the plastic, is because it will absorb and break (and for $3 per mount, really is not a big deal).
Using CNC mount, you are far more likely to damage other parts of your plane in the event of a nose in crash or a nose over on the runway. For example, I have seen the black motor case develop cracks and break.
...id rather replace a $3 motor mount than a $30 fuse
