So I was figuring out how to mount the new motor casing in the
airframe and ran into this issue (see picture). The forward closure on
the new motor sits higher then the old one, and if I simply extend the
retaining bracket it will interfere with the avionics.

The easiest option would be to shorten the mid plate by a hole or two
and move everything up, but I know that module is pretty packed. I
could also use countersunk screws and/or thinner plate for the top
most flat bar, which would help but wouldn't completely solve the
problem.

Alternately, we could skip dealing with this and just design a motor
bulkhead with the strain gauge that will properly fit. (hand waving
here, this is more complicated then it sounds, but there have been a
couple good ideas so far).

Thoughts?

Thanks,
-Dave
