Default Dubro Anti-Vibration engine mount

I bought the #688 large version of this gadget years ago and never used it. Now I'm contemplating using it on my new H9 73" CAP 232 with a Saito 150. I'm looking for feedback from anyone with experience using this particular mount.

A call to Dubro just now confirmed that they still produce it, and spare dampeners.

Also, any info on other similar mounts would be appreciated. I'm familiar with the Hyde mounts.

What didn't last; the mount or the dampers?

Default soft mount

Hello Steve,

I have a Dubro soft mount on my Kyosho Cap 232 with O.S. 70 FS and have had no problems with it. The mount significantly reduces the vibrations on the plane. I had it in the plane for a couple of years and the dampers are still good. I have no experience with the larger size, but I like the smaller one.

Default soft mounts

Hey Steve the dubro soft mounts do work well on the smaller engines,but the larger sized engines didnt last for me or several of the other members at our club. the isolators just became loose after a few flights.i did however have some luck by shortening the inserts some to help compress the isolators, this did lengthen the nimber of flights sonsiderably before replacement.but with the larger engines i just didnt want mess with it. have had great luck with hyde mount. just my experiance, good luck

Thanks, 2lo; that's exactly the kind of information I'm looking for.

I'll be keeping a sharp eye on the isolators, dampers, whatever they're called.

I had the same problem with two of the Dubro mounts, and had to shorten the aluminum inserts to get more pressure on the rubber inserts. That also increased the vibration. I would not buy anoter one.
