Outrunner mount ideas?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have just gotten a gws 3d tiger moth. Now I don't plan on using the supplied motor. I'm going to use a small outrunner on a 2S lipo. I was wondering if anybody had a good suggestion to mount an outrunner in place of the supplied IPS stick mount gearbox. I've been beating it around in my mind what the best way to do it would be. But would like to hear some suggestions from some other builders. I'd like for it to be as strong as possible but still keeping my weight down.

GWS sells one. http://www.gws.com.tw/english/produc...t/gwemm28t.htm
But of course it's always more fun to build one.

When I've built them in the past, I usually just use 1/16th or 1/32 plywood, and they end up looking like this:


Pretty easy to do by hand actually. A round plywood bit for the motor mount, and a couple of plywood gussets as needed...

That looks like it would be fairly easy to build to. I'll have to give it a try.
