    Almost done.

    Ill add props and give everything a once over in the am.
    Not too happy with the way the esc/motor wires came out. Ill rethink those in the future.

    I think ill hold off on the gopro for now

    Take the case off your transmitter and slap a heat sink on there. Otherwise looks real clean.

    Gladly! I thought I needed the case to deal with the heat.

    id also make the power lead shorter once you figure out how long you need it.

    It will cool better without that case. Wait until you see what is inside to transfer the heat.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    For the Vtx... I have a heat-sink from an old computer I can cut down but how should I attach it? I assume some thermal epoxy would be ideal however finding that local isn't going to happen any other ideas?

    @terabyte I left the Batt. lead long to make sure I got everything where I wanted it, it will be cut down once everything is dialed in.

    Need to get some proper batteries too Ill be running 3S for the time being. Planned on picking up some of RMRC's 4S 3300's but it sounds like that might not be such a good idea. Kypoms sound sweet but 75$ is alot of jack when you think that you are going to need a few... Maybe if Chatch would have run some kind of special on those... yes i know i'm wishing.
