Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

mounting flight controller

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?



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 ~~
