Hi Chellie! Great thread, as usual!

Would this idea work for the pictures below? I tried to mount it on Polypropylene, and hot glue it to the frame, but at full throttle, the depron tore. Now my frame is shorter hehe.
The motor MAY be a wee powerful, ahemmm, but we wants to make it work.
Could I use a piece of 3mm ply for the firewall, reinforced with wood along the frame, as you picture it? I may use the nuts/bolts spacer idea, for ease of angle adjustments too, but I am worried about weight.
I am kind of on my last attempt here, because after two failed attempts, my plane is getting short lol.
