Multiplex Easy Star / Sky Surfer / Bixler Adjustable Aluminum Motor Mount

This CNC machined aluminum two piece mount is designed to adapt a large range of outrunner motors to the Multiplex Easy Star. It will allow for three different motor mounting heights to accommodate propeller sizes ranging from 6" to 8".

With this feature you can easily run a lower KV motor with a larger propeller for more thrust and better efficiency. This would be a perfect combination for FPV pilots looking for longer flight times and a more quite platform.

Swapping motors from a 35mm outrunner with an 8" prop to a 28mm outrunner with a 6" prop can easily be done by removing a few screws. This is ideal for those looking to achieve the best performance possible.
Position 1: stock height up to a 6" prop.
Position 2: (+) 0.41" for up to a 7" prop.
Position 3: (+) 1.0" for up to an 8" prop.
Compatible Motors:
28mm Outrunner
35mm Outrunner
Acceptable bolt patterns (mm): 16x16, 16x19, 19x19, 19x25, 25x25

Due to the large variety of compatible motors, please verify motor size and KV will suite flying style. Contact me for any questions regarding motor compatibility

Three step installation:
1. Glue motor base tube into the fuselage (nacelle) making sure mounting flange is square.
2. Attach new motor to motor plate with supplied flat head screws.
3. Attach motor plate to motor tube at desired height with suppled pan head screws.
The fit and quality of these mounts are excellent. These are manufactured by smallpartsCNC. Please visit my website at Small Parts CNC for more rc products.
Included: 1 - Motor Base Tube and Motor Plate, 4 motor screws and 4 mount screws.. Weight: 20g
Notes: A 35mm outrunner motor will only fit in Position 3 (+ 1.0"). 28mm outrunners will work in any of the three positions. The stock thrust angles are retained in all 3 positions. If a change in thrust angle is desired, simply add a small washer between the motor base and motor plate at the appropriate locations.

Price is $15.95 ea. with a fixed shipping of $2.00 in the US and $4.00 International. Send me a PM if you are interested or have any other questions.

Thanks for looking!

Terry

Thanks everyone!

A blended nacelle would be a nice touch. With a simple block of foam, some CA and light grid sandpaper I could see something pretty nice shaped up in very little time. Plus it would be extremely light.

These have been pretty popular so far. I ran a large batch a few weeks ago, and am setting up this week to run another. But I still have plenty in stock.

Thanks again for the nice comments.

Might be a perfect application for a vacuum formed part that could fit over the existing foam motor nacelle
