This will be my second RD180 build. The first built was in a rush, i had to build it 4 days before Malaysian Aerial Grand Prix race so i didn't log any of it.

For this build im going to be using Matek System Mini PDB with built in 5v & 12v step-down regulators. Main power leads has been soldered on the PDB.

I have four FVT littlebee 20a ESCs ready for this build. Also i've soldered a JST-GH (1.25mm Pitch) connector on each of these ESCs for easy firmware flashing.

The BLheli version that came with this ESC is version 14.0. With the JST-GH connector now i can connect to silabs chip and flashed to the current latest BLheli firmware which is 14.2. After the new firmware has been flashed i no longer need the JST-GH connector because i can directly flash and change BLheli directly using naze micro-usb port.
