Give it some carbon or strengthening. It's impossible to have too much power:D I had one do the same though. Had it on full throttle ready to launch when the front of the plane ripped off and flew off while I was still holding the fus in my hand:eek:

On your close up pics is that a central carbon rod? Because I think as long as the motor mount is directly attached to that it should be ok. I usually have a thin piece of plywood cut out slightly bigger than the motor to use as the mount, then glue ~5mm balsa onto it and drill a whole the middle of the whole thing. Then you can epoxy the carbon rod into the hole of the wooden mount.

I didn't do that, I just drilled a hole in my plastic and screwed a screw through the plastic and CARBON then reglued.
