Custom Motor Mount for the Electric Kitten
[CD129HMM]

Custom Motor Mount for the Electric Kitten
Recognizing that some find it challenging to match a suitable electric power system to a new model, we are recommending the Himax 2812-850, and a 3S 1000-1800mAh lipo battery for the Electric Kitten.

This motor is such a fine match for the Kitten, that we have designed a dedicated custom mount specifically for it. The mount consists of six indexing laser-cut, lite-ply pieces, that create a standoff box on the keyed F1 former, as shown. It also includes 4-40 socket head cap screws and T-nuts to secure the motor using its radial mount.

The Himax 2812-850 gives just over 100 watts at full throttle using the APC 8x6E prop, more than enough power for aerobatics and float flying. Performance should be similar with a 9x5 prop. Maxx Products also offers the Castle Creations Talon 15 ESC, which has plenty of capacity for this application.

This mounting solution is light weight, easy to assemble, and provides proper spacing for the Himax motor within the Kitten's cowl. It is suitable for those purchasing either the plan and template set, or the Electric Kitten short kit.

UPDATE: This motor mount kit now also includes pieces to accommodate the AXI 2208/34, giving you a second power option at the same price. We have recently test flown our Kitten using this motor using a 2S pack and 9x6 APC Slow Flyer prop, and find it performs similarly to the Himax on 3S turning the APC 8x6 prop.
