Aluminum Motor Mounts for Multiplex, Parkzone, and Flyzone Super Cub Planes

These are custom machined aluminum motor mounts for the following planes:

Multiplex Fun Cub, Mentor, Easy Cub, AcroMaster, Gemini, ParkMaster 3D
This mount is designed to adapt a large range of motors with bolt patterns ranging from 16mm x 16mm to 30mm x 30mm and all combinations in between. The mount is a direct swap with the stock plastic mount and includes cooling holes to allow better airflow into the cowl.

Two step installation:
1. Attach new motor to aluminum mount with the 4 supplied screws
2. Attach entire assembly to the planes fuselage using the stock thrust angle screws and mounting screws
There are two mounts to choose from:

Multiplex 16x19 13.9g - supports 16mm x 16mm, 16mm x 19mm, 19mm x 19mm motor bolt patterns.
Multiplex 19x30 12.6g - supports 19mm x 25mm, 25mm x 25mm, 30mm x 30mm motor bolt patterns.

Multiplex 16x19 Compatible Motors:
AXI 2808
AXI 2814
E-Flight Park 480 (shaft must be pushed through the back)
and others with the appropriate bolt pattern and reversed motor shaft
Multiplex 19x30 Compatible Motors:

There are far to many options to list, so here are some of the more popular choices.
Full line of Turnigy 35xx and 42xx such as the Turnigy 35-36C 1100KV and Turnigy 35-42C 1100KV
Large selection of Heads Up Rc Motors such as the Heads Up RC 3536-10, 3542-10, and the 4248-08
Exceed RC Alpha 480 1020KV (and other KV options)
Exceed RC Monster Power series such as the Monster Power 10 / 15 / 25 / 32
E-flight line of motors such as the Power 10 / 15/ 25 / 32 (shaft must be pushed through the back)
Multiplex suggested Himax brushless motors
and others with the appropriate bolt pattern and reversed motor shaft
----------------------------------------------------

Parkzone T28, Corsair, P-51D Mustang, Radian/Radian Pro
This mount is designed to adapt a range of 3530, 3536 and 3542 size brushless motors as well as the Heads Up RC Power up 480 motor to these Parkzone planes for an excellent upgrade in performance.

One of the key features to this mount is that it utilizes the stock plastic mount as a buffer zone in the event of a crash. The very inexpensive and easily replaceable stock plastic mount should take the impact instead of damaging the planes fuselage. No cowl modifications are necessary for the 3530 and 3536 series of motors, simply bolt on and you are ready to fly.

Three step installation (detailed pictures below):
1. Attach new motor to aluminum mount with the motors supplied screws
2. Attach Parkzone stock plastic mount using the original motor screws
3. Attach entire assembly to the planes fuselage with the original mounting screws
T28 / Corsair notes: For proper cowl to propeller clearance on the 3530 and 3536 motors that utilize the bolt on propeller shaft you will use the supplied prop spacer plus the flat washer that comes with the new motor as shown in the pictures below. If using a standard 4mm motor shaft (such as the Heads Up RC Power Up 480), or pressing the shaft forward on the motors utilizing a bolt on shaft, the stock collet adapter and nut will work great. Please note, with the T-28 if using the bolt on propeller shaft style motor you will need to either press the motor shaft forward and use a collet adapter, or slightly enlarge the cowl opening to use the bolt on propeller shaft.

P-51D Mustang notes: For proper cowl to propeller clearance on the 3536 motors that utilize the bolt on propeller shaft you will use the supplied prop spacer plus the flat washer that comes with the new motor as shown in the pictures below. For proper cowl to propeller clearance on the Power Up 480 motor use the stock collet adapter and nut on the 4mm shaft. The Turnigy style 3536 motor can also be used with this mount if the motor shaft is pressed forward and the stock collet adapter is used

Radian/Radian Pro notes: Aluminum mount bolts directly to the planes firewall / cowling with the original mounting screws. Must utilize motors with the reversed motor shaft such as the 3530 / 3536 / 3542 style motors.

Compatible Motors (3530 Series):
Turnigy 35-30C 1100KV (and other KV options)
Heads Up RC 3530-11
RC Timer BC3530-14 1100KV
and others in the 3530 series with the 19mm x 25mm or 19mm x 19mm bolt pattern
Compatible Motors (3536 series):
Turnigy 35-36C 1100KV (and other KV options)
Heads Up RC 3536-10
Heads Up RC Power Up 480 Plus
Exceed RC Alpha 480 1020KV
RC Timer BC3536-6 1250KV
and others in the 3536 series with the 19mm x 25mm or 19mm x 19mm bolt pattern
For those that want an extreme upgrade in performance on the T28 and Corsair, choose one of the 3542 series motors. The cowl will need to be modified to accommodate these larger motors by slightly enlarging the front opening. The included propeller spacer may or may not be needed depending on which propeller is chosen. Please note that these 3542 motors may exceed the capability of the planes airframe. Special care should be taken when flying at the extreme speeds these planes will be capable of.

Compatible Motors (3542 series):
Turnigy 35-42C 1100KV (and other KV options)
Heads Up RC 3542-10
Exceed RC Monster Power 10 1100KV
RC Timer BC3542-6 1000KV
and others in the 3542 series with the 19mm x 25mm or 19mm x 19mm bolt pattern

Flyzone Select Scale Super Cub
This mount is designed to adapt a 450 size brushless motor to the Flyzone Super Cub for an excellent upgrade in performance. There are no cowl modifcations necessary. This is designed to be a simple bolt on application.

Two step installation (detailed pictures below):
1. Attach new motor to aluminum mount with the motors supplied screws
2. Attach entire assembly to the planes fuselage with the 3 new supplied screws
Compatible Motor:
Heads Up RC Power Up 450 Sport
E-Flite Park 450
Propeller Compatibility:
GWS EP9050
APC 9 x 4.7
There are quite a few other options based on the type of flying characteristic you are after.
The weight of the Power Up 450, aluminum mount, and propeller collet is 80g. Weight of stock motor and mount is 64g. This extra motor weight will allow you to remove some of the 'dead weight' that was installed onto the super cub which should put the COG right back to stock. Of course the COG should always be checked per the manual after any modifications are done to your plane. Weight of aluminum mount is 3g.
----------------------------------------------------

The fit and quality of these mounts are excellent. These are manufactured by smallpartsCNC which I own and operate. Please visit my website at www.smallpartsCNC.com for more rc products.

I ship domestic and international. For pricing and purchasing information, or if you have any other questions, please send me a PM.

Thanks for looking!
