They wont have the nice feet that Chris' have though.
Well, none of the local hardware stores have nylon threaded spacers in metric nor does the local screw and bolt suppliers.

Guess I'm grounded until the order from Chris shows up... Back to fixed wing for a week or so

You could get imperial nylon spacers and just get some imperial bolts for them for the time being.

Mcmaster.com will get it to you overnite. Or maybe second day. Look around the website for lots of choices. Stick "threaded spacer" in their search box.

Here's a plastic hex 4-40 spacer 1.25" long. 92319A286
Here's some aluminum hex 3mm x 37 that might make good legs. 92319A286

Molex is a brand/manufacturer. Unfortunately, it's name is used for various connector types.

The picture, without a size reference, is a bit hard to tell for sure, but they look like JST-XH plugs. Commonly used for balance plugs on LiPos.

I probably missed the first post you made on this, what are you trying to plug into, and which side of the connector do you need?

Oh, and what pin count?

These will work 30mm long aluminum with M3 thread on both ends so you can still use the stock plastic feet.

Or these they're the same but 60mm long

Well Chris, I put it in the oven not even at max temp because I was afraid, well, she is cooked, the solder started to melt, it was a diaster, and this is less than 30mins.

They share the exact same name? Performing a search for molex on RMRC doesnt look to be returning the right results: http://www.readymaderc.com/store/ind...=molex&x=0&y=0

Try this link.
From your pic, they are also known as micro JST and they come in different pin spacing and pin size and pin number. A lot of video transmitters and fpv cameras use this type and its as simple as lift the little tab and swap the wires around in the plug to get the color sequence right if need be. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/251223133...84.m1439.l2649
