I have been eying this dual motor now for months and wanted to see if these could be useful for a Y6 multirotor.
So bought three pieces from Hobbypartz at $59.70 each.

The motors come as shown below with 9X5 props.
I will add later on more info about this motor.

The frame will be from Carboncore.



Update 5 November: Found some time to make the motor mounts.
Update 23 November: Progress is slow, work is demanding.
Here an test with contra rotating motors with props.
The later needs definitively balancing.
Take an look at the vid and watch the cone, the whole props holding part warps (dont know an better word).

I bought this frame for the Black Vortex FC.

Why an idea instead of build?
There are a lot of commercial frames available and ditto spare parts.
However, there is no information about the part itself.
Hence, some pictures with dimensions about key parts.

There is not an lot of room to place the electronics under the hood.
One can barely fit the GU-344 with the RX.

Rectification:

Previously, i wrote that the motor mounting holes of this frame where mirrored, but this is not so
Till i tried to fit KDA20-22L and the first, the second and third motor fit nicely. The fourth one, it did not fit
This motor has the mounting holes mirrored, or if you like, 90 degrees rotated. Production error? Anyway lesson learned....Continue Reading

The Quanum 2.4Ghz Telemetry System (Volt/Amp/Temp/mAh) V2 can be expanded with the Temp/Amp add-on.

The benefit of monitoring the current, is that the display provides two currents. That is, instant- and cumulative current. Instead of watching the individual cells voltages, the cumulative current is (imho) an better indication. E.g. an fully charged 2200mAh battery is near it's end when the display states 1800mA (80%). Time to land...

This add-on is placed in serie with the battery and the ESC. Soldering wires to the board and then the XT60 connectors to the wires makes it bulky.

Here is an another approach.
