There are many options for making your own, it just depends on what you have available. I have a carboard template of the bolt pattern for each of my motors. Then I just trace that on to the motor plate material, cut and drill it out.

I typically make the motor plate from a plastic cutting board. Then use wood or aluminum for the risers. The prefab mounts pinky linked to will also work.

Yes, I know the pic shows a wood prop.[X(] I don't use them anymore.
