    Hey guys, I'm building a skyraider 1 and need some advice on how to attatch the exhaust to the fuselage. I know one end goes onto the front landing gear bracket. That attaches to a steel ring. Where I need help figuring out is how the top connector connects to the fuselage? Does anyone have pictures of how they attatched their exhaust ring to other planes?

    Is this what your talking about? A lot depends on what Engine your using.

    I can't imagine mounting it without some type of rubber insulator or it will keep breaking. Any two solid attach points should work as long as it has room to move slightly and not transfer the vibration to the mount.
