Need some help here. Upgrading the motor on my p51 and took off the motor mount. The mount has a slight bend. Which direction should it lean the motor in? The prop moves clockwise, so should the mount aim it to the left (am side 11:30)?

Im not sure here, but I would guess it would go down and to the right? Like 5 O'clock...what P-51 is it and what motor are you upgrading to?

I would say 3 based off my foamies that I have, but I also dont know what P-51 it is...I also would say the "right" direction to help eliminate the P-factor(left yaw effect)? You should just bolt it up and see if the cowl fits over motor, normally these only fit one way anyway.

Okay, P51-D ready for take off. Upgraded from 500kv to 580kv motor and installed new landing gear struts and wheel due to wear. Motor sounds and pulls nicely.

From the rear of the plane the motor should be down and to the right .... Looking from the front of the plane the motor will be down and to the left.

Is this the new Lanyu raptor? i know they have two out now but the new one is larger and have a 10" folding prop.

I just look at your pics again and it looks like the smaller version based on looking at your prop. I heard its a great fpv platform and stable plane..
