Nice little frame when assembled and looking forward to the motors getting here. I would like a chance to try it in a single layer G10 3mm or 1/8" version as well. Maybe a little slot milled in the center straight stretch of each arm. One of the cleanest cut jobs I have ever seen with virtually no burn.

daign did you mean 5x3? I had to source them from two different suppliers so hopefully the cw match the ccw.

Question: does anyone have a good way to use the Tri-blade props with a prop saver o-ring? Just wondering, I think I might want to try the tri-blade on this.

I cannot think of a way that would work. I was planing on buying adapters. If you come up with a solution, please post it here!

Are there some tiny light adapters that can be used that don't weigh more than these motors?

other than drilling\tapping an adaptor hub every 120 degrees I don't see how it would work. Pick one screw to be 0/360 and then put other screws at 120 and 240.

Search ebay for "CNC prop JJ 2.0mm"
Just received mine (although it took a while, almost 3 weeks), very lightweight, around 2 grams each.

Thanks, I just ordered 4 of them... may take 3 weeks. Until then, I can try the o-ring adapters. Thanks!

Sure, you're welcome, I actually found that tip in OpenPilot forums a while ago and bought a few just in case.

I wish you guys luck with the prop adapters... I found on small foamies running either the 10G or park 250 motors nearly everytime you touch the ground with a prop on an adapter OTHER than the prop saver the 2mm shafts bend...even a simple nose over landing on grass with my E-flight L-4 has bent the shaft...not much but enough to cause vibes... buy LOT's of shafts OR don't crash
