Time to think about mounting the motor. The model is designed to have 2 degrees of right thrust built in, this is to counteract torque reaction and is the same regardless of what type of propulsion you use (unless you use contra-rotating propellers like they do in F3A).  I decided not to build any right thrust into the fuselage by off setting the firewall, choosing instead to use an offset motor mount box. First step for this was to make a mount for the motor back plate out of 1/8 ply…..
