    I needed a larger radial for my golden age planes and was inspired by @SP0NZ radials. This one is in two pieces - the case & cylinders that allow for a motor with X mount to be attached from the front and the cover then snaps over the top. It's designed for FT2218 but should be easily modified...

    Solved Motor for Simple Cub

    I currently have a 1806 2300 kv motor (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08P5MYWMH/?tag=lstir-20). On the Simple Cub it says I need a 2212 1050 kv motor. Is there a way I can use my original motor for the cub?
