    That's cool. Just looks like a really good fc combo.

    Zeeflyboy, those diamond cut fishtail zrn coated router bits you got... does the zrn coating make much difference when cutting G10 or carbon? From what I've read, the coating is intended to help with machining non-ferrous metals, and precisebits.com doesn't give different anticipated lifespan numbers for coated vs uncoated -- just 3,000 linear inches in FR4 fiberglass.

    I don't know to be honest, they just say "may" increase life... You would never cut metals with this design of bit, the only thing they are really suitable for are composites.

    so here's a quick pic of one of the prototypes with the first type of board with naze mini




    looking pretty neato already I reckons.

    Definitely the cleanest install ever on a mini quad!

    Neat indeed, a very cool looking bug!
    If you're a noob, copy 1:1 what somebody already flies without too much questions, you'll find the answers later.

    Looks awesome, I just have one item that may be worth considering. The RCRx is in a vulnerable location and I have found that SMA solder joints are susceptible to being damaged in hard impacts (both RCRxs and VTxs).

    Maybe you could put the RCRx under the top plate and machine in a couple zip-tie slots in the top plate to support the SMA from blunt force trauma in the event of a crash.

    When nothing else out there will suit your needs... design and build it yourself.

    That's how I built mine if you remember back to the fixed arm version. I didn't put this one together - there are a couple being thrown together rapidly for this Flitetest and IRC road trip, hopefully sander will put together his pink one tomorrow

    There are slots to use zip ties and no problem with putting it on the underside of the plate.

    Glad you guys like it so far. What do you think to the option of having both legs and/or a 1mm CF battery plate to protect the underside of the pack... that would allow you to land on the pack without worrying about damaging it. That way you can choose which method you want to use - as you can see in the pic it sits perfectly happily on the pack if you don't want to use the legs.
