Thanks Mark. I've had the Turnigy for over a year, before they stopped getting them at HK. The 80100's are hard to come by, but Leaders Hobbies showed there were 8085s avaiable last I looked. I don't know if that's a lie though, as it seems they are not above saying they are stocked to secure an order.

also, what's the weight of those alloy plates? im just starting on my own RC build using a 6374 to start, before upgrading to a 8085 or 80100... even with access to my uni's equipment im tempted to get a mill, looks like fun!
Hi mate, I brought it from Hare and Forbes machinery house for around $1700, then I paid about $800 for tooling and about $300 for a rotary table. Its far too easy to spend money on this stuff, but I'm pretty satisfied with this setup for now. It certainly is fun
In the next couple of years I'm planning to CNC the whole lot.
Here are the CAD
drawings, the plate is 10mm ali, so you can probably use some of your engineering skills to calculate the weight:
I can tell you that the weight of these mounts is quite a bit less than the weight of the motor, so I don't think its a big issue. Anyway, with the lightening holes the motor plate weighs next to nothing
Here is a mock up of the mount and jackshaft on the bike:
I'm waiting for a few more parts now. My next task is probably to try putting hall sensors in the motor, though I'm not particularly looking forward to it.
