Step 1: Assembly of Motors and ESC's

Attach the motors to the esc's

Step 2: Solder Direct to Esc's

I remove the shrink wrap around the esc and attach th motor directly.

Step 3: Shorten the Motor Conection

I shorten the motor wires and re-soldered them to the board.( always keep in mind you might have to change the wires during esc caliberation for rotation purposes) Re-shrinkwrap the esc.

Step 4: Motor Slant Mount

You can use this forward slant mount. It helps keep the drone from leaning to far forward for forward flight. Not good for hovering. Use motor screws to mount to slant mount. use flat head screws to mount slant mount to frame.

Step 5: First Motor Done

Now repeat and finish the other three.

Step 6: Last Update July 08, 2016
