This is the second article in my AeroWorks 30cc Extra 260 electric conversion project. In the first article, I listed all of the electric parts I am using in the build. In this article I show how the electric motor is installed.
I mounted the electric motor in my AeroWorks 30cc Extra 260 yesterday.
And here is what the airplane looks like now, with the electric motor.
I used the same DLE standoffs and fabricated a simple motor mount.
It is simple, light and rock solid.
I was a little concerned about how this would come together, but all in all, I am very pleased with the end result.
The ESC is mounted below to get as much air cooling as possible.
Tomorrow I plan to complete the installation and go flying!
