You could try the board upsidedown so the ESC would get more air. Like Flitelab, I would use 10amps

I suspect just some CA. All it does it hold the sides and top frame in place, nothing really with any force/load on it.

Yeah, I think 10A are the go. The 1811 motors they suggest, really need to run on 3S. Those 5 x 3 props like to spin at 20,000rpm for reasonable thrust, so you would need at least 2,500kv on 2S to get up to those kind of rpms.

I use the Suppo A1510-15 2200kv on all my micros with 2S, works great. That is with 5X3X3 props. Plan to use same setup on this as well.

It's interesting to note the 5 x 3 props they recommend for the 1811 motors, 2mm press fit it looks like:

Will press fit stay on well enough?

I also noticed that the 1811 motors they are suggesting are the 2900kv ones, not the usual 2000kv so that means 2S will be just fine with those and 5 x 3 props.

Can't imagine press fitting a prop. Not sure how they intend to mount them. I use the GWS/GF 5x3x3 props which fit with the A1510 motor prop adapters.

I have the little infinity hobby quad with 92mm propellers that press fit onto the 2mm shafts of the motors. I was a bit sceptical but have had no problems as yet.

I guess if the props start slipping when press fit to the 2mm shaft, it's no big deal to drill them out and put them onto prop savers/adapters which come with the recommended 1811 2900kv motors. I do like the red prop color, should make it easier to figure out which way the micro-quad is pointing

No chance , after unfortunatley being in receipt of over 100 of HK's 5x3 blades i would rather stab myself in the eye than use them again , very very badly balanced, brittle and fragile ive also had some detonate in the air they were on 2 cell and 2000kv 1811 motors, and press fit ? ill leave someone else to spend their money first this time.

I would suggest comparing the 5 x 3 blades you used to the photo above before you jump to concusions. I doubt they are the same, I have been using HK 5 x 3 for many months and I have never seen these before.

Exactly my feelings, thoose HK 5x3 are just Garbage but Im still using them since there are not so many alternatives. Are thoose 5x3x3 GWS 3 blades much better?

Why do I feel I am banging my head against a wall!

These are the 5 x 3 HK props you would have used.



These are the new ones made for the Turnigy micro-quad.



If you don't see they are not the same props, then I can't help you.

They look much better than the garbage 5" props however I bet they are heavier. A small price to pay for better quality props. I have been waiting for some decent 2 blade 5" props.
