Eagle 63 was my first plane. Same as eagle 2 but a version prior.

Crashed it on maiden. was by myself. Repaired it and flew the snot out of it after someone taught me how to fly. I never snapped the wings like the old timers said I would but I sure as heck tried.

Just in case no one comes through on this for you, RC hobbies has a A-100 on display I'm sure they would let you measure.

A100-10 mounting tabs are 18mm wide. edge of screw hole to either side of tab around 7mm, and screw hole to end of tab about 6mm.

So, 6mm bolt, 6mm side wall thickness or a total OD of 18mm for a standoff.

Thanks!

An 18mm standoff would be even on both sides of the tab and stick out about 1mm at the top of the tab I guess from what I was able to measure. I had a digital caliper with a dead batt so I was only reading approx mm off main rule marks. The 18mm should be pretty accurate. The others were done from screw hole and could be +- a few tenths of a mm. I can dig out a manual caliper tonight if needed to get more accuracy and/or measure mounting bolts as everything is off my plane at the moment while I work some repairs.

Don't worry too much about it. Your dimensions gave me a good starting point. I'll make it a little under but Trent said that the LHS has one in stock so I might just head over there and mock it up and see how it fits.

I'm guessing that 0.70" Diameter will be pretty close.
