motor mount qs

Post by mick a » 29 Jul 2018, 22:14

hi gents
i’m starting the minimoa mo2a kit from chris williams soon
i want it to be more flexible so want to put a motor in front - the way chris did with topaze
so i can take prop off and but blanking plate on .
motor size seems to be ok and getting some ideas
qs i have is
a : would i have to add extra f1 former acting like fire wall
b : would i still have to add down and side thrust , as wing is 4.85 mtr , and if so how much
open to anyone’s ideas
thanks in advance
mick

Not sure about the former, but I would always go with a bit of side and down thrust. 2-3 deg should be fine.
