Any motor will fit I have already tried

Like 4 arms plates...

Hey beggars can't be choosers!

I will go with what ever I am lucky enough to get frame-wise and then adapt. Of course, I would love to use those 250's and I think that the way they mount will reduce vibration, but I also recognize the hard design and cutting work that is being done and don't want you guys worried about my particular implementation if it costs you more time.

Thanks again all!

Not necessarily. If mounting on top, yes, but not if mounting on bottom between the upright plates as Matt wants to do. His 250 motors must use the included motor mount. If the width of the tabs are greater than 6mm, it will not fit without interference to the upright plates when it mounts at 45 degrees to the arm. He could get them in there, but is not ideal as it would be pushing the plates to the side. No reason to jerry-rig stuff if it isnt necessary. The 22mm holes for the 250's were placed axially to the arms for this reason. They may indeed fit, but without knowing all the dimensions of the motor mount, there is only one way to be sure.

Please see pic.

It was designed for you, for your particular implementation.....What are you talking about!!!! You stated you had very particular requirements, and thats how it was designed.

If it were to be a more universal design, we could have done it a bit differently.

And I appreciate it. Really, I do. I would just rather get what I can and not waste any material since it is already cut, that's all. Seems like it wouldn't be too hard to just drill the holes I need with my drill press if I can't make it work as-is.

That was considered, but its going to need extra parts and screws to hold it all together that way, and thats just adding weight.

Could be integrated in the design.

Yes, some of it could. However, as it is, its true to Matt's design intent. Its essentially how he wanted it!!! So.....

It will use a lot of material that's all.

When will we see an actual assembly :-)

Same amount of material, it just makes using more of a panel more difficult.

Im not sure about a completed unit. Thats up to Mark and Matt.
