Aluminum motor mount for Flyzone Select Scale Super Cub and 450 size motor

This is a custom machined aluminum motor mount for the Flyzone Select Scale Super Cub. It is designed to adapt a 450 size brushless motor to the Flyzone Super Cub for an excellent upgrade in performance. There are no cowl modifcations necessary. This is designed to be a simple bolt on application.

Two step installation (detailed pictures below):
1. Attach new motor to aluminum mount with the motors supplied screws
2. Attach entire assembly to the planes fuselage with new supplied screws

Compatible Motor:
Heads Up RC Power Up 450 Sport

Propeller Compatibility:
GWS EP9050
APC 9 x 4.7
There are quite a few other options based on the type of flying characteristic you are after.

The weight of the Power Up 450, aluminum mount, and propeller collet is 80g. Weight of stock motor and mount is 64g. This extra motor weight will allow you to remove some of the 'dead weight' that was installed onto the super cub which should put the COG right back to stock. Of course the COG should always be checked per the manual after any modifications are done to your plane.

The fit and quality of this mount is excellent. These are manufactured by smallpartsCNC which I own and operate. To reduce cost, these come in bare aluminum as shown in the photos.
Included: 1 Flyzone Super Cub Aluminum Motor Mount and 3 screws. Weight: 3g
Price is $16.00 ea. with a fixed shipping of $2.00 in the US and $4.00 International. Send me a PM if you are interested or have any other questions.

Thanks for looking!

Thank You.

I really enjoyed this one. It was a bit more of a challenge but came out very nice. The Heads Up RC Power Up 450 motor fits great in this plane.
