Thanks for the help widelec,

Just to echo Wiseduck's observation, I think you need to mirror the 45mm holes on the bottom deck too so you can fit the nylon spacers straight through.

And rather than supply spare top and bottom plates, add a pair of enlarged ones to suit bigger boards, this will give you a larger base to land on too...

Maybe I should just order a V2 kit if you can include these revisions and keep the current one as spares?

Nice quality frame though, good stuff

Simple is the best
Thanks for your suggestions. (wiseduck,FE_Obsessed and scousethief )
I will add 45mm hole 2 plate (upper and bottom) to new kits.
It's will be spare part and avaible for miniquad owners

Please, pack this revised parts for us, old customers too. I will ofcourse pay for updated parts.
When I look closely yesterday, i saw that there are no 45 holes on upper plate. In this way I can not put it together...
And enlarged electronic-saver plates too, ofcourse.

Most hardware shops in the UK sell stuff with a name like "Sticky Stuff Remover" which is really good for removing residue left by tape & labels without damaging what's underneath. Smells a bit like orange zest...

Hi Widelec , that is good news , can you also supply an extra 4 of the centre section spacers as these will be perfect for fitting a 2 cell underneath.

upgrade kit :
2-3 plates for electronics with holes for 50mm flight board
1x4 10mm spacers for the very bottom which will make a perfect bay for 2 cell batts

thank you.

So what batteries do people use for this thing? I ordered two different 2-cell batteries off Hobbyking, I went for the lightest 2S batteries I could find and it looks like they won't exactly fit below the frame. I haven't checked yet, but I know roughly how wide the battery plates are and the 1000mah battery definitely won't fit. Not sure the 800mah one will either.

ive got 800 mah 2 cell generic 20c batts here that will fit side ways (tight but they'll fit~) IF i can get the 50mm plates and some 10mm spacers the batts will fit perfectly flat.

In the USA the product you want to remove all sticky residue I've tried it on is "Goo Gone". It's widely available and it too smells like a citrus derivative.

Multirotor Builder!!!!!
Recieved my mini quad frame today. hope t have it built up this weekend.

Ok update. I opend the package. everything looks good, but doesn't seem like there is enough hardware to build the frame. so what I need to know are these M3 or 4-40 threads. I am going to need to get more screws and nuts , and some more shorter standoffs. mine came with a bunch of long standoffs.

The mini Quad needs to be 75mm or less to fit the frame.
