Hello Steve,

thank`s for your answer. But that srew that i mean is this one
which is inside the brasstube of the TV System (axis).
I'm not sur if 2mm is strong enough or if ishould use 3mm.

Look at this post. It's a 100% Su-37 and it has 2212/06 motors. It has some good pictures of the motor mounts. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...54#post9064296

Hope this helps...good luck with the build.

Oops, I thought you were referring to the propellors...my bad! My hunch is a 2mm screw is probably strong enough. When you lay out the motor mount, just make sure to lengthen the sidearms to put the thrust line of the motor through the pivot screw. Simply holding the motor and mount up to the plans and hand drawing the extensions required should get you close enough.

Aaaah,
thank`s for the link to the pictures ofe the motor mount.
I think the sideplates of the TV System should be OK for my motors.
(motoraxis is in line with the pivot srew). Tonight i found motors which
are better.
Look here:

Hi there, here is my offering for mounting my 2212/6 motors on my Su37. 1/8 ply motor plate butt glued to the 3/8 stick. Does not sound too strong but 1" counterhead screw does the trick down the axis of the 3/8 stick. Model has had many flights to date with no vibration or strength issues. As Steve says the motors are a little strong but a vertical take off on some times stops the guys in their tracks at the field !!

Im busy painting it at present, pics to follow and after those dreaded panel lines....

Keep an eye on it. I did sort of the same thing a while back with not so good results. Check out posts #1284 and #1288 at the link below. These motors are a little smaller, but not by much.

Cheers, thats a fair comment, will do. Hopefully a metal centre and expoxy will be Ok but i will check regularly. Flights to date is about 20 so I will think of an alternative and make some up

Anyone here in the UK built this bird? Seriously struggling to find anything half as close to the LSPJ motors

Eg: I found this: http://www.giantshark.co.uk/221206-2...-p-402397.html but it's WAY TOO HEAVY!

This is very similar to what 106flyer is using but doesn't specify a weight: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/A2212-6-Br...2486%26ps%3D54 but have a funny feeling it's near the 50g mark!

This is a great motor for the dual engine setup and the ones I run on mine. It is a clone of the Suppo motor which is 47g but is way more powerful than the LSPJ at 220 max watts. Don't worry about the weight as it is fine, and as others will attest, it flies a little better with a bit more weight. You will need a 30 amp esc for each and I run APC 6x4 regular and pusher props. If you are using more than 4 servos, consider an external BEC as well. Good luck!

Looks really sharp! Congrats! Only for myself and own taste, I would be a little concerned about orientation with both sides pretty similar, but for some it is just a preference.

That is one of the best looking Flankers in this thread! I LOVE that paint scheme and had considered it before. You did a wonderful job!

WOW!! Beautiful model, 106! That paint scheme fits the Su-37 perfectly, and the detailing is superb. Good luck with the maiden flight, and let us know how it goes!

I'd be especially nice if you got some in-flight photos as good as your F-14 pics...

Steve
