Hello Guy -
You don't want a mast mount for your rotor. Use a couple pieces of
angle coming out from a corner of the tower and mount it directly on
them. It's best to do it a a section joint using heavier horizontal
braces; G22, G23 G24 - and use a pair of G25s for your rotor mount.
Put another one at the next higher section joint, and mount your
thrust bearing there. I can send you pictures if you like. You will
get almost 300 degrees of rotation this way.
If you really want a lower mast mount for the Ham IV, I have a couple
sitting here I will gladley sell - but I don't recommend it for this.
