    Engine mounting

    I'm building a profile (Burrito) and trying to sort out where to mount everything. Can a motor (glow) be mounted on either left or right side of the profile fuse?
    Also, if you're familiar, what would be your choice of motor? An OS 46AX or Saito 82.
    Thanks for the help.

    RE: Engine mounting

    Mount the engine so the exhaust port points down, that will tell you which side.
    Either engine will work on it. My preference would be the Saito for getting you out of trouble just a little quicker.
    Mount the engine last, after the servos and covering are on. Use the engine to set the coarse CG after all the other components are in place.

    RE: Engine mounting

    Thanks for the response. That's what I would do, exhaust port down. But, IF I reversed it, do you see any problems with the exhaust facing up.
    As for the engiine, that's what I was thinking about with the Saito. Instant torque!

    RE: Engine mounting

    VERY dangerous to tune with the engine placement like that...........DON'T DO IT!!!

    There is NO benefit to reversing the engine like that!!!
