    Solved 1/16in balsa firewall cannot take 2300kv motor power

    In the FT tiny trainer build, I am using a 1/16" firewall of balsa, however, it is splintering on full throttle with a 2300 kv motor and 7x5 prop. The motor flies out with the screws, shattering the balsa. What is alternative firewall material I can use? Basswood?

I only recently however found hidden in my stash of miscellaneous parts a motor that might have the juice to power it. I had an Eflite Power 15 motor lying...
