    That is the idea ShawnG they are a lot of fun and they are so light and small that they don't brake easily.

    Ok i'm bored so decided to make the harness for the Minion wile i wait for the frame so im using 16AWG to connect to the battery and 18AWG for the ESC and i'm going by this:

    this is from rcgrup
    13=100+amps
    14=50 to 75 amps
    16=25 to 74 amps
    18=less than 25 amps
    20=less than 20 amps

    next time i think i will try 16AWG and 20AWG.

    on another note I'm having sync problem with my Afros and the ZMR so i ordered the programmer but god knows when it will arrive so someone from op suggested to solder a 100uF cap on the Afro ESC to prevent the sync problem, it solves the problem no matter what fw you have so i decided to test this way and also i figure i can use one cap on the harness right before it split to the 4 ESC to save on some weight. This is my finding:

    - tested one cap on one ESC and it worked like a charm
    - used the distribution board from HK to connect all the ESC and motors with cap and it worked perfect
    - used the distribution board and no cap and also worked perfect :@ so now i don't know what to make of it.

    I am going to fly the minion without the cap first, if it doesn't work i will add the cap on the harness and when i get my programmer i will flash the Afros.

    Ps. First frames are in Canada i should have them this coming week

    That's okay, I've had my Mini 5"prop frame prototype sitting on my desk for almost two months now... mostly no time to work on it but also waiting on 12a afro escs, ordered them exactly 1 month ago from hobbyking but... this thread ain't about my frame so I'll shut up now

    Nice one Pat! Like the AUW Here's what the wiring is on mine- from ESCs comes out 20AWG, which are soldered together with 2 small strips of 18AWG, from which 16AWG comes out to the battery. I didn't use any power board to save weight- soldered wires to wires and isolated with a heatshrink
    If you're a noob, copy 1:1 what somebody already flies without too much questions, you'll find the answers later.

    you are flying it LOS... You are doing it wrong.
