Chapter 5. Electronics Installation

In the previous chapter, we went through the soldering procedure for some of the electronics that needed further modifications. Hopefully, at this point all our electronics are ready for installation. In this chapter, we will mount the motors, connect the ESCs to the motors and the PDB, connect the receiver to the flight controller, and finally power up everything with our battery. Note that all the instructions that follow are crucial for your first flight. Read every step with caution and if the result is not what you expected it to be, please be patient and repeat the step.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Motor installation
  • Mounting the propellers
  • Installing the ESCs
  • Powering up
