my guess was bang on the number - just out on the units!

I have started building the Rc timer 450 now and have a few questions, sorry if they seem dumm
How are people mounting their flight control board? can i use double sided tape? Also does it have to face a certain direction? & would there be any issues mounting it on the base plate?

Hi

I have a similar quad frame:

I wouldn';t trust double sided tape.

I mounted my controller inside an upturned clip lock container.

I secured the control board to the lid using 4 m3 nylon nuts and bolts with 1/2" hex spacers between the lid and board.

I secured the clip lock box to the top plate using 4 m3 metal nuts and bolts using four  1" lengths of 3/8" square beech as spacers between the plate and lid.

Yes it has to face a certain direction see the instructions for whatever control board you have.

I have mine mounted inside the frame on a square of double sided foam, the sort of stuff you use on a gyro but a little thicker, hasn';t caused me any issues.

I always us the nylon stand offs although i had to drill the top plate to fit then, you can find the details about my build here http://www.multi-rotor.co.uk/index.php/topic,363.0.html  ~~

Cheers guys,there';s an arrow I have just noticed on the fcb should I mount it with that pointing towards the two red legs?

The arrow will indicate forward direction so point it at any pair of legs you like ~~
