F4F Wildcat

When using a Turnigy 3536C-1100 or a Rimfire 3536-1200 you have to open the prop shaft clearance hole up to 1.5"

1. Install the motor on 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” fasteners. 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!

Oct 20, 2014: I have bought three of these mounts for my Parkzone F4F Wildcats (have two othere PZ Wildcats that are now discontinued by PZ) and they are exceptionally CNC engineered pieces. Beautifully engineered and finished...near 'works of art' in the engineering arena. Highest recommendation for this product for any of your RC airplanes, etc. I intend to buy a few of their PZ F4U-1A motor mounts soon.
