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.
Sure that will work Better yet, slot the foam horizontal sides so you can sheet both sides of the vertical fuse the full width, about 2" back from the front, drill some holes in the foam and add some spacers for the bolts, so they dont crush the foam, brush on some 30 min epoxy or gorrila glue to the foam, and add the ply sides... on the bottom of the horizontal foam at the front, add some ply to that too, both sides on the bottom, and epoxy to the foam & plywood sides, that should be super super strong then just epoxy your firewall to the front, I have had to do this too, hope that helps, Chellie
