The Custom RC Parts designed motor mount for the Super Cub and Super Cub LP allows you to install a Parkzone 480B from your T-28, Corsair or Stinson on your plane.

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.


6061-T6 Aluminum.

19mm X 25mm slots for 3mm fasteners.

14mm clearance hole.

Designed for motors with an operating length "F" of 55mm.

Weight: 13g

Parkzone 480B (off a T-28, Corsair or a Stinson)

1. Install the motor mount using the 4, M3-.5 X 8 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.
CAUTION: You are installing fasteners into plastic. Do not over tighten the fasteners.

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.

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!

Mounted a Parkzone 480B motor on my Super Cub with floats. The best looking thing on my Super Cub is your motor mount! Needed about one minute with emery cloth on the center hole. When I hop up my T28 will definetly use your mounts!!!!

This is my 3rd time ordering from here and its always great quality and fast shipping. I recently bought a Super Cub airframe and wing with the plan of making it brushless. I have a parksone stinson motor sitting around that's going I it and I'm gonna also use the plane for a short range fpv flyer.

Awesome product. I ordered it and had zero issues with the process. I did the install in about 15 minutes and there were zero issues. I love that quality of the machine work and the fact that it bolted right on without any issues what so ever. The holes lined up and the hardware provided works perfectly.

I used this motor mount on my Super Cub when I upgraded the motor to a spare T-28 motor I had. The mount is perfect, all the holes lined up and the Cub is a joy to fly with the new motor installed. I added ailerons and with the extra power the plane is now a joy to fly.
