I have the same frame, got it flying for a bit. Tried to make it work with my Crius AIO Pro + GPS. Sadly, the power distribution interferred with the compass and it never flew well. Also, the Arducopter firmware just wasn't anywhere near as easy to tune as Multiwii. The frame is very very sturdy and will definitely survive a crash or two. Mine is currently stowed away, won't use it again anytime soon... I don't have enough motors and the only hexa I want right now is the S800, for crazy fast flying I have an F330 and F550.

I suggest you buy Hobbykings new power distribution board, (MAX 20A per motor) put that between the plates, solder all the ESCs to that. It'll make it look MUCH better and will also eliminate multiple possible points of failure, all those XT60 connections.

EDIT: Oh I see that you have a distribution board already. There is no reason to have an XT60 plug between that and the ESCs like that. Just extend the ESC wires a bit and add a bullet connector to that. I would still go with a more traditional power distribution board though.

I agree.
At first I was not sure will it fly or crash, ESC if crashed would go to planes and XT60 is for planes.
Was planning to put Simon ESC later or reprogram this ones.
Have are quad with same XT60 and to have spare on HEX and easy replace if needed.

But Yes not good with so many connectors, much better if solder all.
Only good thing in case of crash just reconnect on new frame.
From some reason even I expected crash, no crash on quad or hex after many hours of flying.
