F4U Corsair: The SK 580kv Motor Mount

This mod took a little more time to complete as I had to split the forward section of the fuse so I could re-align the firewall correctly. Once everything was glued back in place I could then design the a new motor mount for the SK 580 to fit the Corsair.

I once again used the X mount that came with the motor. I then designed a firewall mount and then joined them together with aluminum tubes.

UP-DATE: 1/23/2011:
I've updated the attachments to show how I attach the motor mount to the firewall. I've also included pics of the TGY SK 5055-580kv retaining shaft collar that comes with the newer motors.

UP-DATE 2/16/2011: I received the up-dated Turnigy/FMS motor mount from Gary at CustomRC yesterday and wanted to post some illustrations of various options this new mount has to offer for those who have chosen to use the Turnigy motors in the FMS 1400 Warbirds.

I'm pretty sure this mount will adapt to other manufactured motors, but all I have are the Turnigy's, so that's why I'm using them as examples.
