Ive had this one set for god knows how long, it might be a obvious exaggeration to actually call them "indestructible" as HK does but at the very least there pretty dam tough (they survived weeks on my podracer and were even on it when I devastated it straight into a tree.... I mean when a tree attacked it).

Soldering looks OK maybe a little more solder would make a stronger joint?
In theory swaping 2 wires on half your motors sill work but on odd occasions during manufacture they get things wrong. I don't know what rx you have (can't remember) but you can test them before you heat shrink them by connecting to power and to the pwm out put of your powered rx(correct voltage), (ideally on throttle channel). That way you can test if motor is spinning in correct direction.
Worst cast just do as you say and swap wires on half motors and just check after you have built. I find a sort of loop of electrical tape so the end stick out like a flag easiest way to see which way a motor is spinning.

You should be OK mounting the esc there but sometimes its worth getting some air flow over them to keep them cool. Just check after first flight but you should be fine. Might be worth using a cable tie to hold them in position.

Thanks. I've just got this freestyle quad back in the air after an esc and motor caught fire about 4 months ago in the snow. I forgot how smooth it flys

And here's the potential positioning on the arm - looks good, although I may choose to shorten the motor wires a tad to reduce the overhang.

Apologies for the quality of the photos

Cheers - soldering the connections would make life easier.


Am I right in thinking I will need to solder half the motors one way, and swap any two wires over for the other half for CCW & CW?

First pic is removing the existing wires, then having the motor soldered directly to the ESC. Not the cleanest joint but should be fine;







I may Tim beck the heat shrink to the size of the ESC

I would also accept there a few situation in the extreme where you can not get to a downed quad and turtle mode might just save it

But it’s general use just strikes me as daft and lazy. You don’t know what is in the props and motors, you can easily burn a motor or esc, you have no idea what is lose and in the way of the props (eg lipo), or how bent the props are and if they may hit the esc,

The other day I had a battery LVC while holding off allowing buddy to land first (wrong move, he took too long!!), so it bounced JUST enough to slo-mo a half flip and ended on our very short grass patch inverted.  Ideal place for it, yes?

Well, I didn't, and on walking to it one tri prop blade was bent 90 and straight into wiring/ESC.

As you rightly say, I use it on ducted micros in halls, but no way would I use it outdoor unless it was a LAST resort to recovery.

But if you don't have it available, you won't have the choice.
