Hi there

I ordered 2200kv, 30amp motor and the esc from Grayson. After paying for £16 additional to the UK Customs, I finally received them. However, the motor mount that you can see in the picture is not the same as in the masterparts list. When I looked at the details on Graysonhobby website, it said it comes with a motor mounting hardware. So I didn't order an extra motor mount. Not sure why it doesn't even fit in its own motor? It also looks harder to glue it on my plane as there is less surface area.

I know that it is important to fit the motor properly, so should I order that wooden 6mm motor mount? It takes 3 weeks to arrive from the States though! Any suggestions?

Many thanks.

Try turning the mount around

The holes are not all symmetrical, two are further apart from the other two

I tried every combination, but it just doesn't fit. Only 2 screws fit in.

In the picture, the 2 horizontal holes are spread further apart than the vertical ones. That mount is the same as my 4 mjv3 motors and all 4 will fit. You just need to remove those 2 screws and rotate the mount 90 degrees to the right and they will fit. There is a separate wood motor mount that is glued to the foam, then the motor screws into that.

Just put two screw in it, put thread lock on the screws, it will work with only two screws, it's a pusher right?

It is a pusher as far as I know. Thread lock is a good idea. Thanks

you can make a mount out of anything thats strong enuff to hold the motor in its position. since this will be on a pusher as squishy said there isnt much force being put on the "Wood" mount that goes between what you have in the pic and the foam. just try to find something close to wood, like plastic or anything as long as its close it will work. Wood it just the most common. and there are plans for what the shape and size should be on here somewhere.
