Ludicrous speed, GO!
This is a bit of an oddball I came across, found it in a pile of old stuff in a trailer. Further research reveals it’s called a Turboplan, a kit from Austria in the 70s . It’s supposed to run a hot .60 vertically and the foam ring spins to provide stability (sorta like a flywheel). Anyways, I’d like to convert it to electric, and it seems simple save for the fact it has aluminum brackets for the .60 molded into the aluminum hub. Now, my motor won’t fit between them and I have no idea how I’d mount it to the brackets. If I shave them off and bolt it directly to the plate, then the motor won’t stick out of the cowling. Any thoughts or ideas would be much appreciated.
