What mount for this motor?

I would like to put this motor in an e-flite mini ultra stick. It is the parkzone 480 960kv bl outrunner. Is there anywhere that I could get an x-type mount for it?
Thanks

Horizon Hobby should have some kind of a universal mount? if anything get the one for the eflite 480 motor and use a sharpie to transfer hole pattern and drill new holes. I've done it many times.... I probably have a mount that will fit it in my parts box.

Just saw one of the Mini Ultra Sticks at our flying field last week and the front fire wall is set up to bolt the Eflite 480 motor on without the "X" mount. Now the motor you have is different, but you may get two of the holes to line up. I couldn't find any of my old PZ mounts from my T28 to see if it matches the Eflite 480, but you should come close with two of the holes and the other two will be closer together. The motor you have mounts with the 4 screws and they are all the same distance apart, the Eflite 480 also can mount with 4 screws, but two are farther apart and two are closer together.

Yep, just make a pattern of the mounting holes that are on the motor and see what needs to change on the fire wall. Should be very easy to mount. You may need to open up the hole that the collar fits into as it may be larger than the one on the Eflite 480.

I use 9-ply 1/8" plywood for mounts when the x-mount isn't ready to hand.
