Posted by aerobeez On November - 20 - 2014

Hey pilots, welcome back for another installment of Pete’s Tip of the Week! Gearing up for the festive holidays and prepping a new build during the cold winter ahead? These tips are just the thing you need to help with that next build! Intended to help with all types of model building, these tips will help take your building to the next level. Even if you don’t own an Aerobeez plane or have yet to take the first step into becoming an RC pilot, we want to help you improve your model building, set-up, and eventually flying skills.

So without further ado, today’s tip will focus on: Engine Stand Off Set-Up

When drilling your engine stand off holes, Pete will always drill each of the 4 holes at a larger diameter than the actual bolt diameter. This is a great way to fine tune the motor placement to line up your cowling to the spinner.  Always use washers on your motor stand off to firewall bolts!
