110% Anderson Pylon


I got the landing gear made of 3/16 hard music wire made and mounted it and the motor to the fuselage.

The motor mount is made up of a lamination of 3/8 aircraft plywood back plate with v groove milled into it for landing gear,

Then a 3/16 aircraft plywood plate over that with the back plate of the motor mount then over that.

All held in place with hardened 6-32 Allen cap screws.

The motor mount back plate is strengthened to the fuselage with plywood gussets and then at the joint

It is covered at the joint with 8 oz. fiberglass tape.


The motor has a 13.5” clearance over the ground to minimize ground strikes.


Next the pylon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
