Micro Tundra 1306 Swap is a reality ...


It's a reality !
I was able to shoe horn in the 1306 motor .
Adapter plate revision 3 .
There was no getting around lowering the motor .
I also had to massage the front of the cowl with a micro torch .
The clearances are tight , they are there , but it's tight . Cowl looks nice and stock , except for the scorch marks .
But who's going to look that close ?
Thats it for today !

Next some soldering so as to apply power to the motor . But not tonight !

Nice work!

Where did you get the 1306 motor from?

Darn nice work. Did you 3D print the blue motor adapter? Looking forward to the flight review of the plane with the 1306.

Would it be possible to put the blue adapter to the back of the factory firewall and use longer screws? That might keep form needing
to "reform" the cowl.

Adapter plate .. Revision 3

A) Need to space the motor so the prop clears the cowl
B) 1306 is larger than the 1106
C) The 1306 was hitting the top of the cowl
D) Motor was lowered 1mm to clear the cowl ( top )
E) Motor was rubbing the front left side of the cowl , so heat was applied to make some space .
F) I m using stock length screws , but with flat heads . Factory screws could be used .

Adapter plate screws to factory 1106 mount just like with the 1106
1306 screws to the adapter plate ( screws come in from the back ( A little tricky ) , only using 2 so as to minimize damage to 1106 mount .
Need to make a hole in the 1106 mount for the motor screw ( Top )

See 2nd picture in OP

Ah....I see. Times like this I wish I had gotten into CAD type work; had I done so I would have a 3D printer and would print up an entirely new motor mount for the 1306.

I wanted the option of going back to the 1106 .
I also wanted not to damage the MT removing the 1106 mount ..

For me , this was the course of least resistance .
