Brief Description:  Engine Mount Design and Pacrtice

Not much to show right now, so I'm uploading a picture of the pile of paperwork that goes along with designing and performing load calculations on the engine mount for 74SG. Honestly, the first design to get to the final loading is some 3.95x overbuilt beyond the 6G loading for the airframe. However the weight is low enough that I do not have any intention to iterate it down from there.

I've also been spending enough time practicing my welding that Jenny is noticing that I'm smelling like pretty acrid smoke. So The Plan is to keep practicing, and see if I can get dialed in before the engine arrives.
