Building Quadcopter Part 6

Photo 1: ESC (speed control) and motor mounting

Photo 2: More detail on the ESC and motor

Continuing with the build, I attached bullet connectors to the Turnigy 25A Plush speed controls (ESC) using the soldering technique mentioned in the previous blog entry.  The motor leads were shortened to 2 cm to make the wiring tidy and to reduce latency.  I then used heat shrink to insulate the bullet connectors.  The Turnigy Multistar 2216 motors were also mounted on the frame.  The speed controls are connected to the motors under the frame arms and the connections to the power distribution panel are also underneath.  This is shown in Photo 1 and 2 above.
