Thanks Mike. That's my friend Blake Hilson on the sticks. He knows how to get the most out of an airframe for sure. We live in Clermont right outside of the Disney area. That's his backyard with the lake we fly over a lot. He also flies @RCACF field in Apopka(Orlando area). Here's a couple more vids of V1.0 if you liked the others:

In keeping with the context of this thread, they all use a simple motor mount setup. Just 1/8" ply(or 1/16" carbon plate) CA'd to depron(with doublers @ firewall) and some balsa corner stock on the 4 quadrants. Then just drill thru ply and corner stock and mount motor with some RTL socket head fasteners. Lite and haven't had one fail yet and you can see the planes get wailed on.
