Rotor Bones Straight 13-370

Motor mount and landing gear for multirotors. Supports motors up to 370 size (45g) and 8X4.5 props.

These are the assembly instructions for the Rotor Bones Straight 13-370 motor mount and landing gear. You can purchase this product HERE.

The Rotor Bones Straight 13-370 motor mount and landing gear package includes two complete units. They are laser-cut from acetal resin, an engineering thermoplastic used in precision parts requiring high stiffness, low friction and excellent dimensional stability.

These were designed around common 1/2" (13mm) square wood dowel. 

Pop out all the pieces.

Keep these pieces...

Mark your holes with a pen or pencil. Use a 1/8" drill bit... and make sure you drill them straight! 

Snap in the motor mount and tab into one of the side plates. Everything is symetrical, so it doesn't matter which side plate you use. You can install the motor mount in the upper or lower slot, depending on the type of motor you are using and how high you want it mounted.

Insert the center strut.

Install the other side plate. Make sure to slide the bottom tab first.

Now slide it on to your boom.

Install the screws and locknuts.

Done!

Here you can see the two different options for motor hieght.

I truly hope you enjoy your Rotor Bones parts!

Thanks,

Chad

I'd love to buy these, but the postage to England is more than the price of the kit. Surely they can fit this in an envelope, and send it airmail, and we can find our own wooden copter arms?

that Sir sounds like a plan to me. :-)
What do you guys say?
would you consider making a few Britons happy by saving them loads in shipping costs and allowing them access to your absolutely brilliant product.

I'm very glad to see your now getting more involved with the "Multi Rotor" flying platform, these are my favorites. Keep the information coming guy's.
I really like to watch David build these and I think the way you explain things is very helpful.
Also although I don't own an RC Airplane, I like to watch J B build them; very easy to follow descriptions. Chad these Rotor Bones are top rate mate; and little Josh is so funny :)
Top of the class guy's. Keep it coming please.

Im Brand new to the hobby and based on Flite Test's Can Do Instructions, I wish to try to build a tri copter
Can anyone point me in the direction of what motors mount on to these? I've searched Hobby King and others for a 13-370 and a 370 motor but cant find anything that looks remotely close to those shown in the videos here...

Also can someone point me in the direction of the board David is using on his copter

there is a complete build list but they may be backordered. They also may have some over at lazer Toys. or Value Hobby.

Great work guys. I just bought a set to build a new quadcopter... small suggestion: Please design a set that is twice the hight (or more) to build taller quads. I have a few larger camera's I'd like to hang. If you build it I'd totally buy the taller set too.
