Important alignment information: The design of the XLS Snowflake is not symmetrical about its axis. Variations in pixel hole locations exist between 2-4 millimeters if the prop is mirrored horizontally or vertically. If the mounts were designed to fit perfectly with this asymmetry, then each mount would be a unique design and any rotation, horizontal or vertical flip from that one orientation would cause the mounts to fit quite poorly. This obviously would be problematic, so the mounts have been designed to fit in the median location and the pixel openings are large enough to account for the asymmetry. Our recommendation for fitting the mounts to the XLS Snowflake is to first place the XLS on a flat surface before pushing pixels and then place the mounts on the prop with the EMT conduit per the renderings. With the mounts inserted into the EMT, you can then adjust the placement to achieve the best overall fit and mark the coro for making the zip tie holes. Once the holes are made, attach the mounts to the prop with zip ties, but don’t fully tighten them down until all the EMT sections are inserted so there is some wiggle room for making adjustments to the mounts.
