Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Just fixed a busted SMA connector on my TBS unity pigtail, it suffered badly in a recent crash and split in two, nothing a touch of the soldering iron couldn't fix  :D

Building tips wanted

Hey.
Going to pick my rcTimer 450 quad up from post office today.
Have you guys got any good building tips for me, like where to put the batter. Do I need to keep the Rx away from anything. Ect ect.

mickyt

Hi Vidal,

i guess it all depends on what else you plan on putting on the 450 which flight controller your going to use, your esc';s you want to mount under the arm';s this is the best place for them, if you were to mount a naza fc this would normally mount between the two plates.

If using a kk2 board or similar then on top plate and in the middle, the battery from what I';ve seen is either mounted between the two plate';s again only if there is enough room or  underneath the bottom plate, i have seen them on the top plate but only if the naza flight controller was used.

Hope this helps a little  ~~
Ps ask for some pics of others set ups too  ~~
If someone throw's a stone at you throw a flower at them just remember to throw the pot with it.

Don';t use red thread lock if you want to get it apart again. Don';t ask how I know...

Gaza07

+1 on thread lock avoid using it  :rolleyes:  ~~

teslahed

You mean avoid using the red stuff surely? The blue medium strength stuff is worth using on screws to stop them vibrating loose i think - at least i';ve been putting it on all my grub screws etc.

No I mean any thread lock I stopped using it even the blue as I struggled to get some fine screws out that were held with blue the result was the cap heads twisting off, since not using it I haven';t noticed things coming loose  ~~

teslahed

That';s news to me - I';ve been using the blue medium strength stuff on all my motor screws, but only small dabs.

I';ve also been putting it on the M3 metal bolts that keep my flyduino warthox frames together.

Maybe i don';t need to bother?

If you have used blue threadlock and cant get a screw loose, hold the tip of a soldering iron on it for about 15-20 seconds. This remelts the threadlock and the screw comes out a treat  ~~

Gaza07

Nice tip Tony thanks  ~~
