I need it flush with the ceiling to avoid any use of keystone. Any DIY mount I can build for this? I was thinking of just taking a piece of plywood that is about 1 inch bigger than the projector on all sides, and screw it onto the bottom of the PJ. Then I screw the 1 inch overlapping 'border' part straight into the ceiling. Will that work? Any other ideas? Thanks

How is flush-mounting the projector to the ceiling going to prevent the use of keystone correction? Is this a lower ceiling region than where the screen will be placed?

I'd recommend using a real mount (look for low-profile models), and you want to secure it into structural elements (joists) in the ceiling.

Or have the screen not plumb to the wall. A screen that can be tipped with the top towards the seats and inch or two allows manual keystone correction.
