It can also be used to allay another person's reaction whilist kissing that person (French, see the movie "Anger Management", if it is unexpected, or unwanted or did not produce the desired results. I will use the emoticons:
Kiss reaction Pardon secondary reaction hold the applause until the end please..

Dragging John into this was entirely my fault and I did it on purpose!

How about them engine mounts? (thread back on track!)

Chrissi,
I just looked at your new mount photos what is the weight gain with the new design?

Dear Erick,
Trust me, I am looking very carefully at that. It should be minimal because we are going to the trouble to hog out needless material where possible. Look at the starter mounting block in the picture below
Also the redrive mtg plate is minus the bit that dangled below to mount the starter and the upper part of the plate has two pockets in it that are sort of a paraphrase of the weight reducing efforts Tracey authorized to make on that plate. We'll also go from a steel to an aluminum oil pan.
...Chrissi

Chrissi, So are you going to be offering an aluminum oil pan as well?

Wellllllllllllllllll, the one I have in mind won't save you any weight. I found some extrusion with fins on both sides so I had this silly idea of an oil pan with fins on the bottom and fins on the inside. Since 30% of the cooling of the RX is from the oil you could use all the help you can get.
I guess it would not be too difficult to make a lightweight one for you without the fins

Default Rotary Engine Mounts

Rotorheads,
Okay, today we bit the bullet and Randi sent out the purchase order for the bed mounting plates for the 13B/Renesis and the 20B's as well as the improved redrive mounting plates and the standoffs for the redrive mounting plates. We were hoping to drag along a finished sample to Osh but the machine shop is going on a holiday for a week and it is hardly likely they will have anything for us before Osh.
This is exciting, and scarey, a huge investment.
The first 20B tube frame will be done today.
We will be figuring and posting prices for all of the individual components soon. We also wish to work out a discount price if you buy the whole thing at once. This will include the following parts:

-tube engine mount
-bed plate
-vibration mounts
-vibration mount hardware
-longer oil pan bolts
-redrive mounting plate
-redrive plate standoffs
-redrive plate to engine bolts

Those of you who were so kind as to send us RX engine parts and CCI mounting parts etc, if you are coming to Osh and there is any way you can take these parts home with you (or con a friend into doing it for you), please get in touch with us so we can bring those parts along. That will help us keep our overhead down.

Also, if you are ordering a mount and want to pick up the tubular portion we might have time to build a few and bring them, that would save about $100 in crate and UPS charges.

Finally, I can move onto the next project!
Regards, Chrissi

-total of CGP bed plate, redrive plate and spacers = 16.6 lbs
...and they do look mighty fine

Here are the first pictures of the 20B mounting setup, this is everything in the kit, not shown are the pan bolts and washers.
The 13B's are nearly identicle. I will take some pictures for assembly instructions as we put the mounting system on our 13B, I had it on it looks really awesome. The offset starter bracket worked like a charm.

Regards, Chrissi & Randi

You need to be very carefull not to hurt anyones feelings. how do you think the 13B feels now that you used him to test fit for a 20B. he may be thinking , Am I being replaced? are they done with me? are they going to just put me in the corner while that new 20B is making my first flight? and there is the airframe to consider too. sitting there and hearing you girrls talking about a 20B and then test fitting one. She may be getting all excited about this new 20B Dude that is being discussed only to be let down when her owners install that wonderful but slightly smaller then expected 13B. not to mention how she is already feeling from several months of no one paying attension to her. remember covering up her canopy so she can't see is not enough she can still hear you, but is to proud to ask you to work on her for a change. Remember airplanes have feelings too.
