Aluminum is quite easy to cut, it would be easy on a press drill to cut them.
But standard lengh will cause problem there.

It's about 3$ each standoff for the minimum order of 100.
$3 for each will be a steal.How about using round stand-off and add shoulder-shim on bothside of frame plate?

Prices i have are:
100 2.80/ea = $280
250 1.58/ea = $395
500 .89/ea = $445
1000 .50/ea = $500

I don't unserstand what you mean.
I like the shoulder standoff idea, Might dig into other similar way.

That's where I was coming from with the long thumbscrews, until you pointed out the spacers are tapped and have a screw on both ends.
Using a washer would take the stress off a bit, but you still have to pull the pin and hope the spacer doesnt fly off without that shoulder I suppose.

like this: changed locknut for thumbscrew may be better.

this is just for the pivoting side, the other side must have SO-shoulder.

yes,, just stock stand off with screws on pivot side, the other side you can put some thick shim for simulating shoulder.Choose appropriate shim with same thickness of frameplate and press it into predrilled frameplate hole , this way it can't fall off.All you have to do is buy thick shims and some work on press drill. Pretty simple,no?

If you are going to make this a "factory feature", why not just CNC a pressfit nut shape into the plate?
Im not so sure about the spacer nolonger supporting the structure though, wont that bend a bit when you torque the arm?
Perhaps only routing a nut shape halfway through the plate so the nut spacer is kept in place?

I can follow your idea but don't know if cost would be reliable.I think foldable arm would be an option only for thick frame.

Still trying to decide which FC board to go with for mine. Of those whom I've spoken with so far, the consensus seems to be a KK2 board. Still looking for other ideas before I make a decision.

Has anyone tried any of the HoverFly boards?

You have to choose FC which has Vtail config or Y4.Also, using a full option FC will be better as you'll never know what you'll need to add in the future
