Motor Mounting on a FLiton Prodigy????


I have a fliton prodigy and a hacker 20-20l, and I am lost as how to mount it. I need the motor shaft to stick out past the cowl to fit the spinner I bought, but I am lost as how that can work?

Can you give more details such as a picture of the cowl and bulkhead? What type of spinner are you using? Can it take either the 3mm or the threaded adaptor or will it only take one of the two?

You're going to have to engineer a mount for it. The Prodigy was designed with support for only outrunners with raidal mounts. I might consider modifying a Hacker stick mount adapter from Stevens Aero (www.stevensaero.com) and attaching it to the firewall somehow.

The radial mount that comes with the motor works perfectly. This model was designed for the AXI 2212/26 and the Hacker is a great alternative.

I figured mounting it radial, but the spinner I have requires the use of the shaft so if I mounted it radial I wouldnt be able to use the spinner I bought.

It wouldn't work why? Radial mount still has a shaft.

The spinner has an adapter made specifially for the main shaft on the hacker, I dont think the adapter is the same size as the prop adapter in the spinner.

You can use the motor shaft instead of the adapter if you choose.
Remove the circlip and use the collar to restrain the shaft at the plate end. Slide the rest of the shaft through to the bell end and moubt with the radial mount. I can't see why you'd have a problem.

You can. Just loosen the grub screw in the bell hub and remove the circlip. Then you can slide the shaft forward or back in the motor. If the thrust will tend to pull/push the rotor off the motor as it will in your case you'll need to replace the circlip with the supplied collar.
