I could use some suggestions for how to mount the engine to a flying wing. The instructions say all of, 'Mount the engine to the back of the wing using a tie-wrap and coroplast', plus a schematic which implies the coroplast goes on the bottom of the wing, while the engine gets strapped to the top, with the tie-wrap going through the wing around the coroplast.
This seems fairly hokey to me.
I don't have a problem making a better mount, but my questions are: Shouldn't the engine be aligned with the chord of the wing, and not the top surface ?
Also, does the engine need to be in the airflow to cool or could I suspend it in a cut-out in the wing and even cover it with a little tape ? It's not a fast engine, being powered by 8 Nimh AAA's.
