Default TopCap engine mounts

I have recently had a serious problem with the engine mounts on a TopCap ARF. They had cracked and and after removing the top two bolts the engine fell off. Upon further investigation the top ones had cracked as well and were almost going to fail. I made a quick call to morris hobbies to inform them, and was rewarded with a very pleasant coversation where they offered to help with repairs in any way that they could. I told them that I had the situation under control I just wanted them to know about it.

I just have to say that Morris Hobbies and the people working there are top notch and will continue to get my business

Default TopCap engine mounts

I had this problem with a SuDoKhoi I scratch built.... I just cleaned out the engine bearers down to solid material and squared it off. Then I cut a piece of hardwood to fit. Then mount the piece and drill 1/8 - 3/16 holes thru. You may have to drill at an angle. Now epoxy the blocks on with 1/8 - 3/16 dowels thru the holes and you'll be set as soon as everything drys.... Worked like a champ!!! A year later, I had an engine flame out in a hover on this bird and she went in pretty hard... broke a lot of other things... but not the engine bearers!!!
