I need some motor mount solutions, i have an outrunner with a circular mount that has four screws in a diamond shape. The distances between the screws across the diamond are 19mm and 16mm.

A question about mounts for me too.... I want to use an E-Flite 400 outrunner motor on a Slow Stick. Does anyone know right off which or what mount to get that can be adapted to the Slow Stick?

Has anyone done this mod already? If so, how did it all go, and is the 400 outrunner too much?

I just want to have the option for a lot more power available than the stock arrangement seems to have. I would be grateful for any comments, suggestions, or advice. Thanks, guys.

Mike.

I actually just looked around on Ebay and you should search eflite outrunner stick mount and you should find a plastic mount, but I don't have an eflite motor so I got an aluminum mount...

Thanks. Ihad just downloaded the manual from t he GWS website figured that out from the drawings. I'll try and do my homework before jumping in with questions. I'm sure there wil be some morequestions, as I'm just now getting into Slow Sticks because they look like so much fun. But I promise future questions will be based on honest dumb andnot laziness.
Thanks for the info.Mike

I have two of them. One is a camera plane as they make very nice, stable camera planes and I have used it in that fashion for a few years. The other was my first night flyer and still is one. Loaded with leds it was easy to get the hang of night flying and it's fun to fly.
I've put skis on them for the winter and pontoons on them for float flys.
Once I get my FPV system together one of them will be my FPV plane.

I know I'm slow in replying to the motor mount question, but this is for others who may ask. Here is a link to a site that has some of the coolest Slow Stick items. [link]http://www.gorillabobsrc.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=801&osCsid=17cacsjq49b4i7n60c9qhoqnr6[/link] They also have a heavy duty Slow Stick fuselage that I swear by. I still pack the inside of these fuselages with an epoxied wooden dowel, but my slow sticks last 2000 flights on average. [link]http://www.gorillabobsrc.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=40&products_id=552&osCsid=17cacsjq49b4i7n60c9qhoqnr6[/link]
Hope this helps someone.

I have a Turnigy 28-36 750 just sitting around and I'm wondering if that is a suitable motor to use with a slow stick?

That looks like a good motor for your SS.

Thanks. Never had one and thought about doing the whole led night flight set-up.
i imagine the the instructions show how to set up the sticks CG, seeing that all pieces are adjustable.

That will work but it's more weight and power than you need.

I've got this too, I ordered it as a spare for a Hobby King Pioneer, and haven't needed it. I'll try it if the 28-36 doesn't work out.

I got the chance to fly the SS yesterday in no wind after a long winter and it flew beautifully. I removed the plastic wing stiffener so i could increase the dihedral and that helped a lot with flying in the space that i had (not very much space).
