If you drill an average of 3 holes a day, by now your Hobbyking order should have arrived. We'll be preparing the drive motor for mounting in this step.Parts Required:
Turnigy 5065-256Kv Brushless Outrunner Motor, QTY 2
F or 17/64" drill bit
Step 13.1:Gather the parts
Phillips head screwdriver
Drill press or drill
File or sander
The Turnigy 5065 motor should have come with a little flowery mounting plate. We will be using the mounting plate, but its mount holes are too small. They will be drilled to clear a 1/4"-20 screw.Step 13.2: Drill out the four outer flange holes
Use the F drill to enlarge all four of the outermost flange holes, on both motor mounting plates. The aluminum that these plates are punched from is very soft, so it will leave gigantic burrs on the exit side. Use a file or sander to remove the meteor-impact-crater-like burrs as they form, so you have a perpendicular surface to work with.Step 13.3: Mount the motors to the plates using the provided screws
The Turnigy motors should have come with 4 M4 flat-head screws in a little baggie. Mount the motor securely to the plate using these screws. If you have a threadlocking compound, you should use some of it on the threads to prevent vibrations from loosening the screws.
Add the assembled drive motors to your growing pile of subassemblies when done.
