Quick solder pic and question


Is this solder joint ok? It is touching the capacitor. The capacitor came with extra solder new. When I tried to attach my power leads it pulled it all together. I think it is thecground side so it should be ok? Right?

Are you talking about the top one? Yes, that's fine. The component marked R002 is a resistor, btw, not a capacitor.

This is assuming the resistor is supposed to be connected directly to the negative input. If not, you've created a short. I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be connected to the input, though.

Yes I was referring to the top piece. And thanks, resistor. Iím not savvy with electronics. I donít know if it is supposed to be directly connected, but not much room and it appeared to have had a bridged solder joint new from factory before I even touched it. The others did not, but looking at other peopleís builds, Iíve seen them have that part touching as well. I finished the build and plugged it in. Everything worked as it should, nothing got hot as well.

Only issue I have now, is I canít get my motors to arm. I believe this to be an issue through the kiss GUI. I can activate flight modes but not arm and the motors will not spin up.

Hmmm. Stumped at the moment.

Thanks for your feedback by the way.

All is well! Maiden tomorrow! Thanks for your help. As far as getting it to arm, I had to lower my throttle endpoints as a failsafe by the controller itself to prevent any accidental spool-up. As soon as I adjusted my settings, they armed just as they should. All is well now! Super excited. Best build yet!
