    I was right! The counter-sink for the motor mounting screws IS on the wrong side, or is there a more nefarious reason for the counter-sink to be on the front side? :questions: :questions:

    lol actually I found out that its the metal motor mount that already has the countersinks in it. The plastic firewall thingy we made, does not need them at all.

    Sometimes its the simplest things that turnout to be the hardest to figure out. Like which side to cut the bevel on for the flaps! :D

    You guy's surprised me last night on the show.
    You had some good ideas for the plane Mark.
    Sorry ,I forgot to put the canopy on the plans to be cut.
    I am going to redo the skp file and add the hole for the rod and the other locking tabs. :doubleup:
    I really like the motor mount you did for it.May be a good idea to make more and put them in
    the Phlat store.All of my foamies have that round wooden mount on them.

    You're right, for that motor it doesn't need them but if it needed them, than they are on the wrong side. :fugly: :fugly: I, personally, prefer no counter sink at all. :tease:

    Thanks Gary but thats all you man! :good: Its a really nice design and it cut out and went together perfectly (well except for my building mistakes) I think this will be a good flyer to.
    Got any ideas on a power system for it?


    @Yoram I don't think there is a need for a counter sink in the firewall for any motor(that I can think of :questions: ), so I will just do like you say and leave them out all together. If we find a setup that needs them its easy enough to make a version with them.(on the right side of course ) :)
