Hey, not much new. Still waiting for more parts. Last thing I got was the 3DR radio which seems to work great (at least indoors)

Today I mounted and soldered the ESCs and engines. Took a few hours but feels good to be done.

Also tested the one wire protocol for uploading esc settings, seems to be working :)

Now I'm waiting for spacers for mounting the AQ board.

What a nice frame ;-)
How do you like the overall strength?

Eager to see it fly.
