Super Cub Motor Mount for a Heads UP RC 450 Sport
The Custom RC Parts designed motor mount for the Super Cub allows you to install a Heads UP RC 450 Sport motor on your plane. Many other motors fit this mount as well.
This mount has a compound angle machined into it which maintains the stock thrust angle of the motor. There are no shims or spacers necessary.
It is CNC machined out of 6061-T6 billet Aluminum.
All fasteners are included.
16mm X 25mm slots for 3mm fasteners.
11mm clearance hole.
Designed for motors with an operating length "F" of 46mm.

If the Turnigy SK3-3542 or the NTM 3536 is used with this mount a modification to the cowl is required. Please see the installation instructions under resources.
1. Attach the motor to the motor mount using the 4, M3-.5 X 6 fasteners. Screw the fasteners in until they contact the motor mount then back them out a quarter turn. Ensure that the collar on the motor is centered in the clearance hole in the motor mount. Now tighten the fasteners. Once the motor is secured to the mount, spin the motor to make sure that there are no interferences. It’s a good idea to use a little Loctite on the threads.
2. Install the motor and mount on the plane using the #4 X 1/2” and #4 X 5/8” fasteners. Looking at the front of your plane, the 1/2” long fasteners go in the left side (the thin side of the mount) and the 5/8” long fasteners go on the right (the thick side of the mount). I like how the fasteners have more engagement than the stock fasteners, but you can reuse the stock fasteners if you like.
CAUTION: You are installing fasteners into plastic. Do not over tighten the fasteners and don not use Loctite on these fasteners!
3. Route the wires through the firewall.
4. Install the cowl and check for interferences.
5. Install the prop adapter and prop and you are all set!
6. As with any change to your plane, before flying ensure that the center of gravity is correct!
