Anodized aluminum motor extension for DJI F450 (4psc)
sku: PS1-FW450PLT



Motor extension plates for DJI Flame Wheel F450. These CNC machined aluminum plates bolt directly to the F450 motor arms and extend the motors enough to allow 11", 12" or 13" props. These plates can accept three different motor mounting hole sizes, 16mm, 19mm, and 25mm allowing for the widest variety of motor choices.

With these plates it's possible to lift heavier payloads such as DSLR cameras.

CNC machined, clean lines and all edges chamfered and/or radiused. These plates are anodized for protection against corrosion and to add visual appeal. The set comes with two RED anodized mounts and two BLACK anodized mounts. The RED ones are to be used on the red arms of the F450. Stainless Steel mounting hardware is included.

Features:
Adds 61mm to each motor arm
3mm thick 6061 Anodized Aluminum
16mm, 19mm, & 25mm motor holes
Red & Black Anodized
CNC Machined (Not Waterjet) They sell the replacement ones here-http://www.gothelirc.com/shopdisplay...i-copter+Parts

This is when I figured out the spacers that came with kit should be used
Yikes. What are these. I don't remember seeing any spacers between the motors and the arms in the instructions or the kit!

Two kits and one replacement main plate kit. Battery straps, screws, but no spacers. Don't see why you would need a spacer either.

Three frame kits and no spacers.
Robert was supposed to get me some extra bottom plates....

Have you calibrated your ESCs with your transmitter?

Spacers are not the same thing as extensions. Extensions are used to add clearance for larger props. If spacers were required they would be on the parts list and in the build instructions and diagram.

Reflashing NAZA Firmware

Pls short F1 and F2 to reupgrade firmware.


Thanks. Does that mean take a regular connector and connect F1 and F2? Yes

Should the MC be powered up when this is done? Yes, run assistant software to upgrde firmware.

Will this bring back my serial number? Yes

Will it be the software version I had before I tried the upgrade? The firmware matching your software.
Hi builder,

Just need a couple of clarifications.

First the "shorting". Does it mean that you take a jumper with a 3-pin male on each end and then plug one end of it into F1 and the other end of it into F2? This would be like "Short F1 TO F2".

Second, after making the "Short" connection from F1 to F2, do you THEN plug the flight battery into the quad? Should the TX be already on?

After making the battery connection is there any indication that the "reflash" has occured? Beeps? LED blinking?

Finally, after this, do you then disconnect power, remove "shorting" plug, and rehook it up to the computer using the latest "Assistant"?

Many Thanks,
Bob

The above procedure only needs to be done if your firmware upgrade had some sort of problem and has rendered your Naza unusable. This is NOT part of the normal firmware upgrade process.

Hi Bob,



I did this only when my Naza would not communicate with my Assistant. Mine got screwed up when a firmware update got interrupted. Basically, when I turned on the TX and then powered up Naza, and then connected Naza to the computer, nothing happened. No blinking lights on VU, no blue light on Asssitant, nothing except as I remember a terrible continuous beeping sound.

At that point I followed the procedure as per DJI and I believe as you repeated it. At some point it is going to ask you to repower the MC. Press OK .....AND THEN WAIT AT LEAST 5 SECONDS before you repower it!

I don't remember any special flashes but probably the VU flashed like it normally would when you boot up. Basically, Assistant came alive again and asked me if I wanted to upgrade, which I did with no problem.

I didn't get the spacers with my F450 a few months ago but I did get them with my more recent F550. There is nothing about them in the manual.

I believe the reason for them is that sometimes, the motor mounting screws can damage the inside of the motor if they are tightened too much. The spacer shim is an easier (cheaper) fix than producing new injection moulds for the arms.

I am not sure why the spacers work I just know that when I first assembled my f450 one motor would not turn and the other would jitter. When I removed the motor from the arm it would run fine. Did a search on web and found info somewhere, not sure where, of someone using small washers between motor and mount. That is when I found the mystery plates in my extra parts pile and figued out what they were for.

I would say if all your motors are running the spacers are not neccesary. Not sure if I needed to waste everyone's time saying that but someone may need to know.

Right off hand I would say they(DJI) made a bad batch of arms that were moulded wrong and included spacers to fix the out of level motor mounting surface. Otherwise, why don't all the kits have the spacers? I have had all the motors on all three of mine tightened down and they run fine.
My biggest problem was the bullet conectors on the F550 not being soldered correctly, causing the flipping problem.
