Indoor Monocoupe anyone?

  1. Made the motor mount out of 1/8th lite ply which gave me perfect back spacing for the prop.

    Should have plenty of cooling air, as the hole for the battery access in the belly will double as the cooling air exit.

    Fuse with the motor is 34 grams, I might just make my 95 gram target :D

    Excellent job!!

    Can't wait to see the cover and paint, even though it's a shame to hide this fine craftsmanship.

    That has really turned out nice.
     
  8. Servos going in, I shortened the servo pigtails and didn't put the plugs back on just used a few short pieces of heat shrink which only saved about a gram but hey it all adds up.

  9. Receiver and ESC in showing the removed plugs and the shortened pig tails, not in the final location yet just getting an idea.

    With the receiver, ESC, motor, servos and battery I'm at 70 grams.
