Mark Rittingers newest toy-

Anyone see the newest issue of m.a.n.{june}, looks like mark pulled off another one and designed a beautiful P-40 warhawk. It's refreshing to see that brushed motors are still used now-a-days. This article hits close to home for me as I have a Sureflight Tony that needs a similar motor set up. The article even shows a pic of's nice to put a face to the name.
My only question is how exactly did he mount the motor to the bulkhead and then the gearbox. I have a great planes 600 gearbox...I wonder if it'll work the same? Actually, I favor the Olympus belt drive lately...but that's me.
Hey Mark, got a good pic of the motor/gearbox mounted to the bulkhead?
P.S.- really nice job here...excellent reading! Nice to see "foam" used from time to time....does make things alittle easier doesn't it?!

...I think we need a "master list" of Mr Rittinger's planes/plans posted.

I have the plan and have one about 1/2 built. Been sitting a couple months now. I have 5 fliable planes now so i guess thats about my personal limit. As soon as on crashes i'll have some spare electrics and a reason to finish it. Been flying about 7 months now and have not lost a plane yet tho so it might be a while

The firewall is sandwiched between the motor and the gearbox, the gearbox mounting screws go through the firewallinto the motor...very simple
Thanks for the compliment, it is a fine flying ship that will be a great addition to anyones hangar.

Mine flew great on the geared MM...but I had to go brushless: Axi 2820/10, 12x8, 8x3000. Much better!

Got it on the gearbox...Thanks.
Where are you guys finding these "reverse" MM's? The LHS doesn't know anything about them...and they cater to RC cars heavily. you have a list of your planes/plans? Anyone sells "all" of them?...aside from you....
