Default Brushless motor mounts have set angles?

Just finally getting around to putting together an extra 330 glow ARF with electric conversion... my question (since this is the first time I've had to mess with this) is this;

Do the little balsa ply motor mounts for brushless motors (it came with the plane) have the thrust angles pre-cut into them? or am I supposed to shim the box to the desired angles?... pictures can be posted if requested.

Hi Patric,

Set the motor to the correct angles needed for proper thrust position with shims as needed.

Either electric or glow power need the same. GOOD LUCK.

Thank you Bern,

I was a little unsure if the angles were pre-cut into the box pieces... didn't look like it but then again 2 degrees isn't much so I couldn't tell if just couldn't see it
