As previously mentioned earlier in the posts, It is very likely that the motor mounts you have may not fit. The mounting holes are taken from Turnigy 2830-11 mounts. One size mount had to be chosen as there isn't a simple "one size fits all" solution with this frame. The Turnigy was picked because it is an inexpensive motor that has worked well for us, and it keeps the cost down.

You might need to enlarge or modify the current mounts you have to fit. The other option would be to drill new holes and install your own inserts that align with your mounts, but I feel it is best to adapt to what is there. Again, I am posting a picture with the proper measurements for everyone to see.
