DUBAI 210
- fyi.. this is my first build - I am obviously a beginner - I'm learning from my mistakes...
- ordered June 17th 2016 from GearBest
- received within a week
- update 7/9/16
- still in progress, less than 2 mins total flight time

- be sure to elevate pdb above carbon frame
- need to decide which way to face battery cable: out the back or out the side (thinking now out the side may have been better so as to leave room for other components like vtx, or rx)
- rx antenna decisions
- wasn't sure where to put rx antenna, currently tucked under pdb (10mm nylon standoff) with channels at front antenna to rear
- 3d printed plastic piece to get 90deg separation and have it glued to top tail of quad
- i hate the SPF3 micro connectors too many wires and Flysky IAS6a rx only has PWM: too many wires!
- created a temp skirt with painters tape to keep wires out of prop area which looks stupid but was effective
- need to get battery strap: currently using painters tape to hold...Continue Reading
