Any1 have any neat tricks on mounting a jive 80 in my logo 600? The curved frame don't seem very easy to mount well. Love your input.

It is not going to sit flat but on the other hand, it won't move either. Which is what you are aiming for

That's what I use and it doesn't get any easier than that.

I dunno, I guess I'd like a more flat surface or a slot that a narrow strap fits into instead of a wide long strap that has to go all the way around that part of the frame.

If you need to adjust for the curved surface just double up the double-sided tape. I use 3M VHB tape about 3mm thick. That tape is scary strong!

There's no need to reinvent the wheel here. Mounting the ESC is probably the easiest part of the entire build. Get some good double-side tape and stick it on. Now do be careful if you ever need to remove it as the that tape is very strong. I cut the tape using an X-acto knife as you cannot pull it off since the tape is so strong.

I understand about not tryin to reinvent the wheel, but cud u imagine if they didnt "reinvent" the wheel with helis??? There wud be no logos! After all, this is a hobby and mods and tweaks are what it's all about, right? And a well thought design would of had a flat surface if the esc was meant to mount there. IMHO

No worries, there would still be Logos. Yes, it's all about tweaks and mods, but that doesn't mean that tweaks and mods are needed nor does it mean that tweaks and mods make things better. Some folks tweak and mod for the sake of tweaking and modding.

Apply double-sided tape, mount, enjoy.

these are all good suggestions. and, frankly I do the same as far as just sticking it to the frame and strapping it down. But, one thing I almost universally hate about internet forums is when you ask a specific question and most of the answers are "why would you want to do that?" when it's a perfectly reasonable request.

so, in the spirit of actually answering OP's question, here's a solution. might be more trouble than its worth. but, i've thought it through. and, i might actually attempt it myself just as a bit of fun.

overview: create a fiberglass layup mount that consists of a flat top (to mount the ESC on a flat surface) and a curved bottom (that will mount flush to the airframe).

materials needed: fiberglass cloth (available at any auto parts store), CA, CA activator (to speed things up), acetone for cleanup, some scrap wood--1/4" thick x 2-3" long, plastic food wrap, a dremel w/ cutoff wheel. optional: nitrile gloves (unless you like being covered in CA), sandpaper, bondo polyester filler, paint.

step 1: cover the front portion of the frame with the plastic wrap to keep CA from getting on your airframe. we'll be using the frame itself as the mold for the bottom of the mount.

step 2: cut out a strip of fiberglass cloth as long and wide as you'd like the mount to be. i'm thinking business card sized or smaller. no need to be exact. this can be trimmed down with the dremel later after it has hardened.

step 3: lay up the fiberglass cloth over the plastic wrap on the airframe. position it as you would the final mount. soak it completely with CA. make sure the cloth is completely wet. then shoot it with the activator. warning...it will get hot and fumes can burn your eyes. just have a small fan running and you'll be fine.

step 4: use the same plastic wrap wet layup method to create a small open sided box around your scrap wood. when complete you should have a roughly 3" x 2" x 1/4"high fiberglass box with an open top. remove the wood mold when complete.

step 5: use small strips of fiberglass to attach the curved base of the mount to the open side of the box.

step 6: optional---sand, fill, paint box (filler will add weight...be careful)

now you have a lightweight mounting block for your ESC. with CA activator i don't see this project taking longer than 30 minutes...an hour if you've never worked with fiberglass before.

post pics if you attempt it...otherwise I will if/when I give it a shot. good luck.

if it ain't broke, break it.

This is kinda the same reasoning of you guys who drilled holes thru the insides of the frame for neater wiring. Lack of design thought in the wiring dept and how we can mod to make better.
