I haven't done anything to it. It appears that it has somewhat changed since. Maybe now that it's been outta the box awhile, idon't know. I flew it on 4s with a 10x8apc the other day. Wow does that thing haul now.

Doess anyone know how to make the motor mount for the sr22? I had an oops as well. Does not make sense to buy fuse, its like you have toassemble all over again.

On my mount is CA'd it back together. Then used a powder and ca mixture which turns to cement. It's like a rock now.

I used epoxy with micro balloons mixed in. Be sure to make some stops for the front wheel so it can't turn too sharp. I've had mine go past center a couple times from hitting a bump and when it does the wheel is sideways and the plane flipped over cracking the cockpit. Once you get these little bugs fixed it's really a sweet flying plane.

Broken Electrifly SR-22 Motor Mount


I read what happend to SWills listed above. My SR-22 Motor mount has also broken. The plywood is damaged but the airplane had it happen on the groud before the flight. The airplane is undamaged but the plywood is damaged that mounts the motor to the fuselage. Not strong plywood or it wasnt glued at the factor correctly. A Rimfire 10 motor was used on the airplane. Id like to purchase a new motor mount separately but it looks there only sold preinstalled in the fuselage.

I dont want to buy a whole new fuselage just for the motor mount. Any suggestions? I might just make my own from strong plywood and epoxy it to the fuseladge and try to drill some holes to mount the motor and epoxy it to the area of the broken motor mount. I have to estimate the location of the motor holes and insure alot of epoxy is used to prevent the motor from separating in flight.

If any of you other SR-22 flyers get an prop strike on the ground be sure to check your motor mount. Prop strikes might cause cracks to the motor mount on the airplane that you cant see due to it being inside the fiberglass cowling area. Due to the speed of this airplane in flight any crack in the motor mount might cause a vibration to the motor that eventually might to have it become separated from the mount and cause a problem in flight.

How did you all get rid of the huge gap between the front of the cowl and the spinner. Mine has at least a 3/8 inch gap or more.

Kill two birds with one piece of ply...

Reinforce the motor mount with an extra piece of 3/16" plywood, and that will set the motor back enough for the spinner to fit nearly flush.

Worked for me... If I'd only done the same to the nose gear, she'd still be flying!

Funny, i took out my nose gear on a landing too but luckily it was an easy repair. Won't be breaking with all the epoxy i put in it,lol.

I appreciate the responses and the 3/16 plywood spacer seems like a great idea. I assume the spacer goes on the backside of the mount and that I will need longer screws?

Roger that... And, make sure you drill some vent holes through, so the motor gets some airflow.

Not sure of this is the most current thread, but Ive finally finished my build (well 99%) and took it out to fly today.

It was a little windy, but I got 2 packs through it and it came down in 1 piece.
I need to research the front wheel fix as thats clearly a weak spot.
