The SK450 Dead Cat landing feet hold the quadcopter a couples inches above whatever surface it lands on. In this step we will mount the landing feet to the ends of the SK450 arms.
The last step in assembling the SK450 Dead Cat quadcopter frame is to add the landing feet. Gather together:
- All four landing feet pieces
- Eight small hex screws
- Thread lock
We will attach one landing foot to the end of each SK450 arm. Notice that the landing feet have two screw holes on one site, and just one screw hole on the other side. The side with two holes goes closer to the quadcopter body.
Now, there are a total of three screw holes on each landing food. However, you will only be able to screw in two screws because the middle hole is too deep for the screw to fit. I am not sure why the landing feet are designed this way.
Anyway, apply a dab of thread lock to each of the screws and screw down the landing feet. As always, get the screws nice and snug, but keep in mind that the landing feet are made from plastic, so don’t go crazy.
Now by this point you should have the entire SK450 frame assembled minus the motor mount plates.
