Just a small update but a big step towards the end of the build. Slots for the velcro and esc wires shortened.

Velcro slots are pretty straight forward. I laid down a battery pack on the bottom plate and drew a line next to it. I drilled one 3mm hole and took the rest out with the dremel. The result looks like this.

The esc's are a bit more work. Cutting the wires, splitting the three wires into single wires for ease of desoldering. Measuring the wires and solder them on again. And then finally shrink wrap them back into a black jacket.

After that it's time to put it all back together. Starting out with soldering all the esc's to the bottom plate.

After that it's a matter of putting all the screws back in and fasten them.

And than the great wait starts, I just received an update of one of my ebay purchases. Instead of a delivery notice. it was a "I just put your package in the mail" notice
It could have been in Holland allready if they did that the day they got paid.
