The mounting screws for this motor are narrower than the stock motor mount. I can align it so that two of the four will work but that doesn't seem very good. Are there other engine mounts for the 500 somewhere?

No, I want to use the 4 mount points but they don't fit. The engine can be aligned one way but only 2 screws can go into the motor.

He doesn't need to be ridiculed here. Please stick to the topic!!

Only 2 screws in the motor is normally what everyone uses. No need to use 4 - if at all possible anyhow.... FYI

I've seen a local guy using the 486 heat sink to mill out part of the top for his trex-500 motor mount. Look great, but I don't have picture. Whenever I see him again, I'll take some picture. It's very good for release some heat from the motor, but he used only 2 alen screws. I bet it's heavier than the stock one.

Oh geez, maybe it was a stupid question and thanks for pointing that out. I didn't realize it as I just built the kit, I thought the stock motor mounted with the 4 screws but I see in the manual that is not the case.
