The "X looking thing" is the mount.  You need to attach that to a type of firewall. That is the most common method.

Apart from debit cards, you can also use PCBs. They are much more rigid and easier to drill through.

Here's what I do when I don't have an X-mount.
1) Get the mounting hole dimensions of the motor.
2) Create a 2D drawing of the mounting holes in google sketchup and print it.
3) Stick the printout on a PCB and drill the holes.

Cool!

I used to heat a nail or screw-driver for making holes when I was 13 and didn't own a drilling machine. I miss that. Using some 'jugaad' is much more fun than using a machine to do something!

No, PCBs require a drilling machine. You can get a PCB hand-drill for around  Indian Rupees 90.

No, but you can try reaming. First make a small hole with a nail or pointed blade. Then you can make it larger by reaming it with scissors.

Anyone listening...

You can use the Mica sheets that are used as capping for plywood. If you notice, Mica sheet inside surface has grains. So if one sticks two pieces of mica with the grains sides facing each other and aligned at 90 degrees, we get thin plywood which can then be shaped to what ever purpose, be it motor mounts or sidewalls or elevons or elevators or rudders, flaps etc. They are available in any carpenters shop or wood works common in most cities in India

Just sharing a thought if anyone is interested
