Thanks,

i have no pix but if you have a dremel its easy just sand the hole and make space for the motor and after installing the motor reinforce the tower with fiberglass tape to prevent the tower from bending.

Hey guys. Just finished with my build. When looking at the motor from the rear of the plane, should the motor be rotating counter-clockwise?

I looked at the picture on the box to figure out which way the prop goes on. Then i swapped my ECS wires to get it turning in the right direction. I could send you a pic later tonight.go in . Wording facing the motor.You want it to pull like it was on the front the plane, if that makes sense.

FPV Raptor Build Log

Hi Folks,

Can anyone point me to the build instructions for the Raptor. I suppose I can figure it out but I have learned if there is an easy way that I should probably try to take it. I am concerned about the tail assembly at this point.

Many thanks

Marc
