First make sure each image is no more than 100kb. Then click the "manage attachment" button on the post window under "additional options". Browse to the file. Click upload and then you are golden.

Is that the way the kit calls for the motor to be mounted?

Yes. Accessible. Flexible (from a crash-damage-resistance point of view). Very appropriate to the plane's main mission (basic training). Granted, it's not the prettiest way to go.....

Is it simply the 2 zip ties or does something else secure the motor as well? I don't care about the looks and knowing SA I am sure it is well thought out. Just wondered what keeps the thrust line in alignment?

It's a GWS direct drive speed 400 mount. The motor is held down to the mount by two rubber bands. The mount itself is form fitted to the motor and prevents it from pulling forward or twisting. The rubber bands allow the motor to pop out of the mount in a crash in an attempt to preserve parts.

Finally got mine all re-assembled and this time powered with a Razor 400, "C" gear and an APC 10x7 SF prop.
With a TP 3s1p 2100 she weighs 17.5 oz... AUW !!!

PS... added some stripes on the bottom so these old eyes can keep better sight of top from bottom...

Guess it worked but they're bad pics. I swear it looks better in person. You can't even see the chrome trim in these pics. I'll try to post better ones.

Really like the bottom. It's like a reversed Art Scholl scheme.
