I have been looking around lately for an engine motor mount in an assembly kit form for this Cessna. The dimensions of this motor mount cannot exceed 7.5" wide by 6.0" in height and 4.0" deep. If there is anyone with knowledge of where to acquire one, please do share with me.

Scott-- Your setup is beautiful and clean. Is that a 100cc gas engine you have bolted on? I will be powering my Cessna with an OS-320 Pegasus, which is a 53cc glow engine. I want to build plates with shelves to keep 5 batteries up front which is why I have been exploring wood assembly kits for the engine box. Underneath or in front of the engine box, I'd like to build pocket for a servo that will adjust the engines needle valve for fuel/air mixture going into the carb.

Hi Scottkeeper:

Were you required to angle your engine down a few degrees to center the propeller shaft with the engine cowling? After studying mine a bit, I think it would require the mount to be angled down some. I'm not sure of the actual number in degrees. Will have it measured soon. I'm designing a mount for Sierra Giant Scale to make me one. Hope your build is going well.
