I love the v4 attachment method, but I really need the larger mounting holes since I run a 2008 motor, and it's been perfectly balanced for a while now.

Great mount, but the legs snapped off during the 2nd landing (not a hard one)... You may want to reinforce them by making them thicker at the point where they meet the mount.

Hi, you're very right. Mine broke too. Maybe i should go over it one more time. Thanks for your input :)

And a 12x16 or 12x12 holes mount pattern could be fantastic for people with light setup

Yes you're right, i might consider this if i ever get back to the design table :)

Hi ! I printed one for my bonsai, but your motor mount is closer to the wing vs. the original plywood mount. I can't mount a 6" props and the 5" props are really close to the ailerons of each side. Is it possible to extend it a little 10 or 15mm and maybe more area to glue it to the wing. Thanks man

Actually, a lot of people cut their elevons to get bigger props on. As for extending, it's likely you're using this to put a bigger motor on it, yes? So more weight, but being closer to center means not changing COG much, yes?
Otherwise, you can probably load this into something like onshape or other online editors and just stretch it from the motor plate to wherever you want. It's a benefit of this simple design actually, and inexpensive nature of 3D printing, you can play with it until your COG is perfect with your specific gear. :-)
