I recently crashed a Fortis Airframes TITAN Tricopter and the frame is completely broken. All the electronics still work fine so i want to use them to build a mini quadcoter for fpv racing. But I don't have enough money to buy a whole new set of electronics. So my issue is I don't know if the motors and the esc will work on a mini quad.
Here is the list of electronics.
-Sunny Sky x2212-9 Kv:1400 II Motors (three, i will have to buy 1 more) (too big???)
-30 Amp esc Ready to fly quads.com (three, will buy 1 more)
-kk2.1.5 flight control board
-3s 11.1v 3000mAh 30C LiPo battery
-orange r615x 2.4GHz receiver

P.S.- i already have a 3d printed quad frame the Hovership MHQ2

Unfortunately, those motors and that battery are probably not going to work well on a mini quad. The motors have too low of a KV rating for props small enough for a mini, and the battery is much too heavy. Most minis use motors somewhere in the 2000 KV range and batteries around 1300 mAh.

ok so i have a 1350mAh 3s 11.1v will that work with the 2000kv motors and would the 30 Amp esc work too

That battery will be fine. The ESCs might be a little overkill, but they should work fine.

The most popular motor size for minis is probably 2204 2300 KV if you're looking for motors. There are a lot of options out there.
