    Maybe a stupid question but I like to learn

    Why?

    So you just glue the ESC to the arms and let the wires hang free/loose?

    Depends on your flying style. For beginners I would recommend a neutral CG - the NAZA doesn't have to fight a forward tendency and you can hover away ("Kampfschweben", as we call it in German). If you make it a bit nose heavy, you can speed around a little bit easier. But never overdo it! All in all a stabilized Quadrocopter is much more forgiving than a plane when it comes to changes in CG.

    Question about my build but morr on the video side.... I thought i read somewhere that a gopro can create interference issues with a vtx? I was going to install mine where the core goes, will this be an issue?

    All i do is FFF and in so, you want the cg right where he has it marked to back even more. Tilted up this is like a single rotor, the props, motors, anything up top is now out front. if i grab the frames side where the back arms bolt to the frame, mine sits there perfectly still tilted 45 degrees

    if it's nose heavy and a naza, it'll bob up and down in forward flight. too tail heavy and she gets pitchy



    prop adapters are all bent makin jello but you get the idea. there aint even a gopro on the nose, it's an as-10 up straight over the front arms with 4000 mah 4s in the back.......

    So I received my new motors the other week and I made a little picture tutorial for you all on how to clean your contacts prior to soldering new ESCS. Don't mess around putting new solder on old corroded contacts!

    Get some solder wick... this is super thin stuff, great for picking up solder, bad when you have SOO much solder to pick up, so wind it up like I did and it's like a sponge. Then put it on the blob of solder, put your iron on top, press hard until the solder starts to give away and then try and lightly scrub the area. Press too hard you can cut away the top coat of the PCB so be careful.

    Finally clean it up with some ISO alcohol!
