Default Mounting brushless outrunner on GWS Warbird

Hi All,

What is the suggested approach for getting the thrust line right when mounting a little brushless outrunner on a GWS Warbird. I have one of the GWS Brushless mounts, but putting that straight on the engine stick will move the thrust line down. A quick look by eye seems to suggest that putting another balsa stick on top of the current stick mount (after cutting it back a bit) would go very close (possibly perfect) to putting the prop shaft in the same place as when she ran a geared brushed setup.

Thoughts?

Oz,
It's been awhile since I've put a GWS warbird together, But if I remember correctly, the Mustang & Corsair have two slots to attach the mounting stick. And, putting HIMaxx 2816-1220 outrunners in them was a match for one of the slots. (don't remember which but obvious when you try it out). My Mustang came out perfect as did my Bro-in-laws Corsair. My BRo-in-law just reciently put together a Zero, which he had to fabricate a plywood firewall in which to attach a 2812-1080 HiMaxxmotor to. It wasn't exactly the same as the gearbox position but very close. The Zero flies excellent leading me to belive ifyou get reasonably close, she'll fly fine. Good luck.
Rick

Heh Rick - thanks for your comments - they inspired me to JFDI. Here's how I did it:

I used one in an E-Starter with a BP-21 which is the motor of choice for GWS warbirds

From looking at it I would have thought it would lower the thrustline? Can you post a picture of how you have it mounted please?
