These do not have technical information, they are only meant to be thought provoking and provide a different perspective on Experimental Aviation.
 William has manufactured a few mounts for the Q200 and D-Fly. Contact him directly and perhaps consider the base mount he offers for the Corvair case as a foundation on your mount. 

 I also will be using this engine on my project(s).  One unit is destined for undercowl a Cappela XS2 Light Sport I own (STOL). 

 The other..a Q2 fuselage based tandem wing design...been built and flown before...known as a Frankenbird.

The only Corvair in a Q-2 I know about was Joseph Snow. He cracked his up on his first flight, it was basically underpowered. Maybe Richard Kazmerick knows of others.

I am looking for measurements and drawings for construction of an engine mount for a corvair engine on the Q-200.  I know several have been constructed and would appreciate the contact information for those members if they are part of this group.
