Can you elaborate a little?
So does it still fit (without modification) the motor mount that you ship with the crashtesthobby planes?
Are you using one and if so what do you think?
In a pusher configuration we have never had any trouble with just using two bolts on the motor but in the Hercules Gentle Giant puller configuration there will be a lot more force on the bolts and we decided to update the mount to the Hercules standards. I'm not worried about the strength of the stainless steel motor mounts but the aluminum casing in the forward mount.
So ........... We are getting a 4 bolt pattern in the new updated motor mounts that will fit the CF3530 KV 1100/1400/1700 motors. The blue motor uses a different bolt pattern and will fit two of the holes but not all 4 so it won't be any weaker than it already is on the old design.
