Help - How do you mount a Super Tigre 370 on a GWS Slow Stick?

I have a GWS Slow Stick and I just got a Super Tigre 370 brushless motor given to me. Does anyone know of a motor mount for this setup? Has anyone mounted this motor on the slow stick? If so how did you do it? If not what plane has anyone used this motor on?

Thanks

the disk portion of this stick mount would work well, but something on this site should work

This mount would be the ideal way to do it, but it's out of stock.

The Millennium mount mentioned above is virtually the same thing and will do the job just as well.

Radicalrc and hobbyparts have that mount as well.

Thanks guys but those mounts wont work with the Super Tigre motor. It has a 3 point mount like a triangle on a 34mm diameter. Most motors use the standard 4 point mount like the ones you posted this little guy is different. You can't see all three mounting points in the picture but I think you can get the idea. The disk mount is close but the bolts would be right on the outer edge and I'm not sure it would work, it's just a little bit too small.

Oooohhh, THAT motor. Yeah, there are some oddballs that use that setup. I think Electrifly's smaller Rimfire motors do, too.

You could just get a small piece of plastic or wood and drill the 120* holes in it for that mount, then bolt/glue it to a normal one. A bit of epoxy would be more than enough to hold it. If you really like to work with wood, you could make your own stick mount that goes straight on the fuselage without needing one of those mounts...

Description:

This would work failing anything else. Just use a small piece of light ply between this mount and the ST mount.

You can find this under the motor mounts at Radical RC

Wait a minute. Does that funky silver mount come off the motor (screwed to a round post/tube type thing), or is it built in?

If it's a separate piece, would something like this mount work?

Unfortunately, if it is like the 400, the bearing tube is 9mm... and very short!

From my review of the 400: "The ST 400 is 28mm diameter, 30mm long and has a three armed mount which requires three mount holes on a 34mm circle. This mount is locked to the bearing tube with a single machine screw... the bearing tube is 9mm... a real and annoying oddity, since just about every other motor of this size uses an 8mm or a 10mm bearing tube.... for which there are readily available stick-mounts".

The SuperTigre .10 has a 12mm bearing tube.

Really guys......

Just get scrap of light ply, some triangle stock, and make a firewall on the front.

Mount pieces of triangle stock to the four sides of the stick "fuselage". the result you want is flat front, cross shaped surface. Then glue/screw the ply to the front as a firewall style motor mount.

Screw the motor to the firewall.....DONE

Adjust the thrust line by stacking washers between the motor and wall if necessary.

I make my own mounts like the one in the second post.

Two simply round disc of ply laminated together (cross grain of course) and then cut a shaft that fits inside the SS stick. The end of the shaft get a dual angle cut to angle the ply down and to the right 6 degrees and 3 degrees respectively.

4 small triangle gussets and epoxy the whole thing together. It takes about 20 minuets start to finish (not including epoxy curing ).
