That F4 FC looks very nice, only need to attach a receiver and camera and you're good to go. Cool 

It would be perfect for building a light 130 sized 3 inch micro quad. Smile Will get something like this when upgrading my 130. Smile

Ace, more goodies...
cool

I've just been searching for a stepped drill bit this very morning, how bizarre, found one  on Amazon almost as cheap as BangGood (Can't be arsed waiting again)

Also, that CF CF battery cover plate, could you measure it for me mate, I'm after one that's 100m long, and about 40mm ish wide (off top of my head) to cover the base of my Nighthwak, to protect electronics. For now I'll use a CD slip cover, which will work temporarily.
I'll see if I can find one on BGood...

Jay cheers Finally. Smile Looks good for the low price, complete with antennas, battery and charger, tested it already?

Hope you can get out soon to do some flying.

Went with the MR30 connectors for the motors / ESC`s.










And the good old Matek PDB mainly to power my LED`s ...pins to power flight controller circled.

Looking sweet.  

Have you fixed the hot motor problem yet? The screws that came with them might be too long. I used the ones that came with the Racerstars, they are little bit shorter, and I have motorprotection between the motors and frame. This also raises the motors a bit(about 1,5mm), but even then the original screws were too long. ( https://www.banggood.com/2204-2205-2206-Motor-Protect-Landing-Gear-Protection-Seat-for-220-250-280-Frame-Kit-p-1056009.html?rmmds=detail-bottom-viewalsoview )

About the build:
Maybe you could put the ESC's inside the frame, looks like there is space enough. I would certainly replace those copper standoffs with plastic ones. Is this not causing problems? I read on Banggood a warning with a flightcontroller, not to use metal standoffs or the board gets fried. Is it not better to attach the FC to the 5vBEC, instead of taking the 5v from the voltagealarm/lostbeeper contacts?

The servo lead runs from the PDB to the flight controller to be able to switch the
LED`s and buzzer using my taranis,seems pointless just using the signal wire and
cutting off the power wires and taking power from another place on the board when
it`s already there.

The "Brass" standoffs are just a personal thing,i like the look of them and they are
strong to hold the PDB at the vulnerable bottom of the quad,also I put plastic
washers on them to stop any voltage leakage or shorts.

Sadly the wires on both the motors and ESC`s are not quite long enough to fit inside
the body of the quad or I would certainly of put them in there,i think they are about
5 mm to short.

That's looking great matey, really neat job on connectors, heat wrap etc, gorgeous looking Emax white motors too, looking good...

Shame you couldn't have the ESCs inside I agree, but if they're too short you could possibly extend em, I know more hassle lol.

Also if you did extend em, use a smaller heat shrink wrap over the larger one (green one), which will grip the wires, again no big deal though but you'll have that opportunity if you extend em....

Looks really good dude.

Good job!
cool

The pix make the heatshrink look all loose and baggy around the wires but it is actually gripping
them quite tightly,it does spoil the look though I must admit.
