Also attached the landing gear to the lower deck so it gets up the quad higher off the ground and allows more room for the camera to have an unobstructed view.
And the Paris board has been mounted on the lower mezzanine - a position a few of us consider to offer the most protection from my limited skilled thumbs.
Nice work - it's coming right along! Sine you are a neat builder, I think you might like how I plan to do my wiring (super neat and clean)! You'll see soon!
My scarab is coming along too. I really like the motor mounts that slide into the booms, they fit very snug, are rigid and light weight. I too will mount my Paris board underneath the booms on the lower level (at least that's the plan for now).
