Hey all--

What AP mounts comparable to Askman's would you recommend for the Trex 500 (430mm)?
I'll be using the Canon G9

Thanks a million in advance,
Dan

As far as I'm aware the only other viable option would be to buy some G10 and build your own. Either that or stretch your heli.

I think mounts from other manufacturers are better suited for larger heli's.

Thanks Griffo.
Do you know any sources for G10?

type in g10 - you want to purchase 1/8th inch thick. I buy the black variant. A 12 x 24" sheet will cost you 27$. That should be enough to build 2 mounts for a 500

Dude you rule, thanks man!
I see there's phenolic, laminate and FR4 Garolite-- which one is preferable?
And what type of fasteners do you like to use?
Thanks D.

the fr4 is what i get. You want to stay away from the laminate that is sheeted with paper, get the cloth variant.

this is the part# I came up with: 85345K622.
Thanks again d-bledsoe.
I'll look at some Askman pics to model it from.
Do you use epoxy or screws? Probably both.
This is going to be interesting.

Yep thats the right one.
I use the same small metric bolts you use on your helis. Along with the g10 you may want to pick up some 1x1" hdpe rectangle stock pt# 8671K16. you use this as a stiffener between frame pieces.

This is a mount from SpartanRC no longer in production but the plans are available. It kinda looks like it might be a front mount but it may also give you some ideas for one of your own.
