My new motor mount does not fit the predrilled holes in my 3D Extra SHP!!..what now?
So, I just got my 3D Extra SHP 47'' (a beauty), and apparently I made a mistake choosing which engine to use with this plane, as the default motor mount is slightly larger than the holes present in the firewall of my plane.
This is my TR 42-40B 900kv motor:
I thought this guy had similar performance and mout/shaft measures as the Eflite 25 model!, but they are not!, the Eflite has smaller mount and thinner shaft (even though both models claim to have the same 5mm one). What did I do wrong here? what numbers did I not consider correctly?
So what now? do if I drill 3-4 new holes in this firewall?, will the structure become too fragile for my 3D usage later on? Also, the new holes need to be quite close from the original ones, collading with the wood rings present behind the firewall. Not sure what to do there...
I wish there would be different size motor mounts to fit whatever holes the plane came with, but my local hobbystoreUSA does not have/carry such product.
I can't wait to fly this beauty, so any help/hint is MUCH appreciated .
