Rubber between motor and frame?

(MickeM) #1


I am building a 900mm, 7kg octacopter with Tiger Motors. I have always mounted the motors directly on the carbon motor-plates which are directly on the booms. Do any of you use any dampening between motors and motor-plates? Like rubber of any kind to lower vibrations.

One word; DONT ! Frame and motor fittings must be as rigid as possible. An elastic mount for motors could make PID tuning hard or almost impossible.

Clear answer. =)
I know some put rubber on FPV-racing-drones.
I am not talking about 10 mm rubberlegs, more like tape-thickness (not elastic att all, only gets rid of some vibrations).
But OK, I will start mounting the motors without the rubbertape.
