Ok Gents, I'm having issues selecting a mount for Jim's 600 OH-58 and my upcoming 700 JR. Both are using 600 size older align style CF mech's, but with 3 main bearings.
In my 600 JR I used the hard plastic raised mounts that bolted to the skid mound on the frame but, I have been unable to find any or any of the wood former's that you epoxy together.
I know I could use an L bracket type and mount them to the frame but I'm trying to mount it in the landing skid mount instead due to having to raise the mechs some to get the tail boom centered in the fuse tail.
Any suggestions. Thanks.

,Dennis

I would try making my own using 1/8in plywood (and stacking them) or, if you want to go fancy, 3D print some in the dimensions you need out of ABS.

Thanks, yeah I know I can do the ply if I can't find them. I was thing of doing the same in aluminum strip build up.If I use L brackets I would need to build at least a 1" base for the entire bottom of the frame to set on due to the need to raise the mechs [more weight]
In my current JR I built up the floor of the fuse first and used it as the mechs mount platform and the landing gear mount point. It's worked great and is strong. Had a few hard landing with no damage. New use for a old ceiling fan blade I could build the base higher and just use L brackets to mount the mechs right to the base but that will add a lot more weight. My current 600 JR weight is 12.5lb and the tail cone is full of lead to get the CG. Not wanting to add to much more nose weight.
Anyway I was just hoping for a few fresh ideas for the mechs mount points.
