Prototype mount for a TowerPro brushless motor intended for Brooklyn Aerodrome's Towel RC plane design.


Build instructions for the Towel are available on the Brooklyn Aerodrome site:

This part is a drop-in replacement for the motor mount described in the above instructions.

The dxf file has a drawing of the TowerPro plate for which the mount was originally designed. Change the dims there for alternate plates and recompile the OpenSCAD model. Additionally, there is a "margin" parameter in the scad file if the plate is just a bit tight.

You'll have to drill out the bolt holes on the mount face for the plate; the set screw locations were different relative to the mounting holes for each of the four motors I have, and I wanted them to be in an accessible location once the mount was attached to the Towel deck.
