I mounted my DD motor (the first time) by zip-tieing it to the original mount (on top). You can sorta see this from the older pix in my gallery. Now I've got it mounted on the horizontal fin mount because I busted my boom supports a long time ago. I reccomend some 3m outdoor double-sided tape (the grey stuff with red backing) between the DD motor and the mount before ziptieing to hold everything in place (mine used to move around a bit after crashes).

I'd put heat shrink tubing on your stock blades to increase head speed. Try some 1.65" or 1.77" shrink from http://www.aeromicro.com (under misc.) and don't try to shrink the whole blades at first, try 7 - 8". I use 6" strips of 2" shrink and it adds noticeably to stability.

I didnt want to bother with screws, so zipties got the job done for me.
