Hi Neil. Thanks for the tip. I picked up the same towel rods from Home Depot yesterday, so I'm curious if that solution worked for you? If so, how did you mount your motors to the towel rods? Did you use anything special to drill the holes into the towel rods (or did you just use your drill with a small drill bit)? I also noticed these towel rods are slightly thicker than the stock 1/2" arms that come on the Arducopter, so I guess I'll need to widen the Arducopter base plates a little for them to fit.
Hi Darrin, I just ordered a few alu arms from the DIYdrones shop. Afterwards I got the tip from Neil. So I don't know exactly how they fit the motors to the arms. But I think you can just drill a hole and use the mount that comes with the motor (the square).
