Which screws go where

Hello all

My 450 frame arrived today but i am not sure which size screws go where on the frame as there are two sizes the first set are 16 x m3*7.5mm and the second set are 24 x M3*6mm.

I am not sure if anyone has come across this but i thought the screws would have all been the same size.

Thank you

Dave

Theres 24 holes for the arms,to attach to the centre plates...so that would be the 24xM3 6mm??.....by the way i have some good motors for that in the for sale section!! ;) ;)

Yeah count the holes - that';s the way to work it out.

I think they are a bit mean not providing any spares but it does mean you can work out which ones go where.

Hello bomber

I thought that about the 24 screws for the legs and then i said to myself but what about the other pack of 16 x m3*7.5mm screws where do they go.  :confused:

I had the same problem when i built my first 450  :smiley: :smiley:

The total lack of instructions is a bit of a pain considering that they are selling them to complete beginners.

The longer ones are for the motors.

I just built one a few months back. Not the highest quality screws but the hex wrench supplied is even worse :banghead:

Have fun and keep us in the loop.

I got the same kit. One of the motors had only been threaded on 3 of the holes *sigh*

davethepitch

Oh dear the two posts above dont seem very promising so i am glad i only paid £8 brand new for the frame.

The 16 x m3*7.5mm seemed to obvious to be motor screws as i thought that motors came with there own screws.

Yeh its defiantly the longer ones for the motors as the shorter ones do not reach through the arm.

And yeh the hex wrench is a pain. dam thing wears out really fast.

Motors usually come with their own screws but on that frame you need to use longer ones - that';s why it comes with 16 of them (4 for each motor).

I didn';t bother sending you any screws with the motors i sold you because they wouldn';t fit and i know the 450 frame comes with the right ones - you';ll be fine  :smiley:

Throw the free one away and buy yourself a decent hex wrench if you haven';t already - you';ll use it lots.

Hello all

Well i assembled the frame but i had two slightly squeaking screws as they were almost all the way in when i was fitting them but at least they come out again if need be.

I did not use the little hex wrench as i have a pretty decent set of hex headed drivers so everything fitted ok.

The DJI copy frames are quite good,but if you want to do stunt flying,and crash a lot  :whistling:..the legs are a bit weak..........hence why im now trying to get a carbon frame built at a reasonable price......

I think the clone arms are more brittle in winter and do snap very easily  ~~

You should think yourself lucky. The frame I';ve just bought doesn';t have any screws for the motors so I now have to try and get some :-$ Of to my local hobby shop today frame and motor in my bag :-)
