Brushless motor mouts
« on: January 02, 2020, 12:40:40 PM »

Hello all,
I would like to put a brushless motor into my next boat, Where is the best place to get a mounting for it ?.
Assuming I would be best with a proper mount, the boat will be about 2í6Ē long, single shaft.
I usually make my own, but Iím thinking as they are more powerful than the brushed Iíve been used to, I might be better to buy the proper mount.

You'll find that 28mm outrunner motors will fit into the standard glass-nylon '380/400' sized mount, while the 35mm motors will fit into the 540/600 size ones. Here's a 35mm motor in one of my models.

Hello Dave,
Thankyou for that, is it sturdy enough, I wondered about those, but I thought it might shake a bit.

If there's something out of balance then yes, it will shake. However I've used these in nine models so far and had no significant problems with them. I think the Leopard outrunner motors are better than the Turnigy ones in that it's easy to re-assemble them with the shaft at the other end. That means that the rotating part of the motor is on the opposie side of the mount from the coupling which seems to be a more sensible approach.
