SHOW & TELL

For the above quadcopter build, I need standoff screws. These are also known as “computer screws” as there are used to secure the motherboard to PC case.

I searched for them in Mangalore for half a day. Then I texted John and sent him to the market in Pune.

He found them and some hex spacers too, but they were too big for use in the quadcopter. The quadcopter uses 35 mm spacers between the top and bottom layers, so I need standoff screws with the female part less than or equal to 5 mm in length.

Half a day wasted by 2 people.

I still need them. Don’t want to buy online domestically as they are extremely overpriced and don’t want to buy such small stuff from China. If anyone finds them in their city within India, I’m ready to pay.

Screw - M3
Male (external thread) length - 5 or 6 mm
Female (internal thread) length - 5 mm
Quantity - 20 nos.

Abhi Sai Ravi Please let me know if they are available in your cities.

Sai, Ravi, Abhi and John Please don’t go out of your way for me.

Since people here won’t sell such things in retail quantities, I found http://www.banggood.com/300pcs-M3-Nylon-Black-Hex-Scre-p-984310.html
