Default screws for mounting outrunner

Silly question....

what kind of screws do you use to mount an outrunner radial style mount to the ply??

woodscrews? are they enough

nut and bolt? if yes, what size? #4?

just curious... I have used #4 nut and bolt before but it seems like overkill and extra weight
would just #4 woodscrews work?

how do you mount your outrunner, enquiring minds want to know!


Cheers

Default RE: screws for mounting outrunner

Of course, that's going to depend on what outrunner you're talking about, and what it's being mounted to... If you're talking about mounting a little AXi 2208/34 to a lite ply mount on a Shockflyer, #2 wood screws are more than adequate. If you're talking about the 3000+ Watt power system on Greg Covey's 1/3 scale Edge 540, then I wouldn't go with anything less than 10-32 or 4mm, and through-bolt it to the firewall using blind nuts.

sorry my bad[]


you had it though... for this one it is the 2208/34 on lite ply

most powerful would be a Hacker A20-20L...might use #4 for that.....

wow #2 is enough... ? Hmmmm


Thanks
