X1 / X525 Aluminium motor mount replacement

The nice X525 and X1 QuadCopter frames are cheap and light, perfect for beginner as they have suspension legs helping in the hard landings.  This frame also fold and is great for transportation.  More and more people are using it as basic platform and hack it and improve it.  


This new product is to specifically address the carbon fiber motor mount flex issues and stress fatigue failures. 

CNC machined from billet aluminum it is designed to adapt a large range of 28mm and 35mm motors.

These mounts are much stronger than the stock ones and will eliminate the common cracking and vibration issues. The nice bonus is that it's a direct replacement with no modifications necessary.

Designed and cut by Terry at http://smallpartscnc.com They are now on sale for Canadians in my store. 


I know a lot of you did some similar plates but these looks way nicer and are quite lighter as excess aluminium is removed. 

Here is my own home made ones, soon to be replaced by these nice ones! 


Will post picture of them mounted on the Quad as soon as I get them! Should be 5-10 days.

    A set of nylon spacers for inside arm mount, would be good to reinforce arm/motor plate interface.

  • Sweet, thanks for the heads up!
