If ESC #3 is Motor #2, then take the ESC #3 wire and connect it to the Motor #2 pins on your FC, etc...

There should be no need to cross wires...

I hope this helps you a bit more...
Yup. The 4-1 esc has 4 individual ESCs built in and each has its own signal wire. After you solder he motor wires to the ESC, just match up the signal wires to the pins on the flight controller.

Which 1306 motors ? motor hole alignment?


Hi Guys,

I just bought the HB122 frame. Waiting for delivery at moment. Unfortunately, in my excitement, mistakenly ordered the v1 frame instead and couldn't manage to cancel the order ...

Which brings me to the qs on motors. read earlier in thread that 1306 motor holes didn't line up with holes on the v1 and some drilling / filling needed to be done. Is this the case only for rmrc 1306 motors? What about the usual DYS or EMAX ones?
Some users reported that they did not need to drill the holes.

Motors will be my next purchase so any advice or info would be a great help. I have 10a escs already ... and i think they can be used for the 1306 4000kvs. But just worried that i may screw up the drilling part.

Or just go for 1104 6500kvs?

Any advice? Thanks all in advance.

Colin

I can't speak for other motors, but I use the RMRC 1306-3300Kv Black motors on mine (which aren't available anymore...) and I had to drill out the holes. It's really not "drilling out", but just extending the existing holes a little bit. It took maybe 20 minutes total for the whole frame. I just put a drill bit on a Dremel and went to town, just did it carefully.

Thank you for the info. I mostly read users had the issue with the same motors. Just wondering if other motors could maybe just "fit" without any drilling.

Actually am afraid that drilling with my shaky hands may cause the "alignment of the motors to shift and cause me more problems. If thats possible.

Thanks again

I would think that as long as the center of the motor was at the center of the hole in the arm, you should be ok. Hopefully someone else can confirm...

Does this frame support 20x20mm FC and 4in1 ESC stack? I did a search, but did not return any results.

Well your 4 in 1 ESC options at 20x20mm are lacking, and mostly 2-3s rated anyways... So chances are you'll be going 30x30mm 4-in-1 and then a 3d printed adapter mounted to that stack that will adapt to the 20x20 FC. Totally possible. Probably tons of options on thingiverse.

Thanks for the info. I already have a 20x20 stack and power train on a broken frame I will be using for this. Omnibus F3 Nano, Racerstar 12a 4in1, DYS 1306 4000kv motors running on 4s.

Clear for Take-Off!!!
Anyone here flying the HB122 with DYS 1104-4000 Kv motors? I have these motors on my HB122 on 3S pack and looking for prop recommendations.

I would try DYS 3045s t-mount style props. I use the single hole m5 version on 1306 4000kv motors on 4s. Lots of fun!

I use Tattu 650 4s 75c packs on the DYS 1306 4000kv motors.
