I would like to see what they look like.
I started the DJI Flame Wheel F450 build finally last night. Got all the soldering done. That was a bit of a hassle. The adjustable iron I bought is a POS.
Got the booms and the motors and the ESC's wired up and mounted. Along with the flight controller computer and the radio receiver. What's left is to get the top deck mounted and the GPS receiver installed.
Then it gets plugged in to my computer for calibrating and testing. DJI has some slick software for doing that.
What was sad was I had to cut the battery plug off my Phantom battery charger to have a battery connector for the F450. I can replace that later. I have a real fancy charger for my batteries I got last week that will serve.
Breakfast first then back on it. Who knows, if the weather holds I might sneak in a test flight this afternoon.
