Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

What do you mean by isolate?

How stuff is wired? Or how stuff is mounted inside the plane?

I know not what to say. Possibly a few others could get me started.

Brent, since days gone by now, I don't believe there's many that use foam rubber and rubber bands anymore.

My RX's are generally mounted with Velcro (provides a certain amount of shock absorbency) and a Velcro strap.

Batts I try and use firm foam underneath and usually tie wraps.

Ignition is either mounted with Velcro and Velcro straps or if the unit is supplied, with tabs and grommets to allow air circulation.

I still do try and keep ignition components away from RX components.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Like Jack. My receivers are "attached by mating Velcro self adhesive strips, and a self mating Velcro straps around a base constructed for this purpose. Batteries similar, possibly tywraps.

Hope this helps.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I'm sure they (E.M.) thought everybody has a set of Velcro gloves.
