When cutting the edge of rear fusalage the plans can call for 8-10mm from this from the center of the hole or the edge. Thanks. Paul Drake 70

Paul I ended up with a Lycoming for my engine, but above is the start to a highly successful highlander aircraft with the Yamaha r1 engine. I think your going to see more and more in the future as the engine is reliable and light and powerful. somewhere associated with this video im referencing you will find links for the gear box matting. Good luck. Great engine
