Ventus 2c: installing the motor bulkhead

The Ventus 2c will get a powerful inrunner motor. This allows for a lighter motor with lots of power to enable easy handstarts on the slope. Urs Leodolter at as usual helped me pick a really nice setup. With 6kg pull it should allow the Ventus to go near-vertical.

Installing the bulkhead was done using the usual technique. Once put into place using a few dots of 5min epoxy I fixed it permanently using 12hr epoxy and two small carbon rovings. See the more elaborate description, linked through under the “how to” section.

The usual 43mm RFM scale spinner – which we use for almost all our builds – is again a good fit – even with a difficult fuselage shape to build a motor into.
