Many electric motors will come with the mount a stick type mount. All you do is drill a hole in the stick where the mount has openings (In the pic there isnt a hole drilled yet).

TY Gringo i think i see the curved piece around the front of the motor with 1 maybe 2 screws into it is that correct, and then the square piece around the stick and it's all 1 piece?

all one piece with 2 screws, this particular one is on a himax 2812. I have had problems with it bending on anything less than a perfect landing on belly landings. If you go with one of these motors I would recomend buy a few extra mounts as backups.

this motor is an outrunner so the black part of the motor back is what rotates, the only part that doesnt rotate is that blues frame where the mount is attached to

However you can reverse the motor and mount it from the back, but then you cant use the stick mount you go with a firewall mount

I dont really know what you would classify as a starter motor as they all pretty much run the same way. A small outrunner like this Himax 2812 would be a good place to start. If you dont like the stick mount it can be reverse mounted to the firewall. Also check out the AXI motors as they can be mounted in reverse as well. Look down at the bottom of this page and there is a graphic showing hoe to mount the motors.

If you are new I would probably recomend buying one of the combo packages that a lot of folks sell. That way you know you have a good motor, esc, and batt to airframe setup.
