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.

Hi Hannah. Unfortunately, there has'nt been much headway done on the Cessna yet. I designed an engine stand for my OS 320 Pegasus and sent it to Sierra Giant Scale to have one made as well as a nose strut. While in this waiting period, I have been thinking through the elevators and rudder linkages to the servos. Because the fuselage isn't a two piece, it makes for a difficult setup. How are you faring with yours?

Ron

Nice....sounds like it will be worth the wait. The sound of that engine will be sweet!!!
I haven't done anything with mine in a while.....been a couple months since it has flown. I have an addition going on at the house at the moment which is tying up what little free time I have. That said, I do plan to do a little bit to it this winter. I have to get a pilot in it.....looks kind of silly with no pilot. I also need to finish the landing lights, and I may go back and thin down the pilot's door......maybe....
You'll have to post some pics of that engine mounted when you get it all squared away!

Haha... It seems we think alike.. I can hardly stand rc airplanes flying arond without a full sized pilot in them. Mine definitely will have one. Working on getting lighting to replace the stock ones. For whatever reason, it seems not to sit well with me using the ones that tommy provided. I think the Unilight controller with their lights will illuminate better during the day and definitely awesome at dusk. How about breaks? I intend to retrofit mine with breaks, as well as inflatable wheels. Oh, and my engine would also have an onboard starter which I acquired from Fema..
