Further two my previous comment, something worth remembering with all this arm confusion. The motor screw threads go in different directions depending on the rotor direction. This means I had to de-construct my front right arm to put the motor on the left one then put the motor from pack 7 on the front right.

I now have 3 out of 4 arms complete and attached to ESC's but boy did that pack one cock up confuse things.

One thing I need to do is sort my cables out. Yours are much neater. :)

As long as you have a silver nut in the rotor to the left front and right rear, and the black nuts front right and rear left you have it licked..

Marsot, I am in the same boat as you unfortunately. 4 rotor arms all counter clockwise.

I'm not giving up hope because I got a replacement arm (albeit the wrong one!) very promptly through Tomick, so hopefully I will get the right one in the next couple of days. The build is frustratingly slow though and I can't imagine the suffering of the 24 month subscribers!

To be honest, I'd pay upfront to get the remainder of the subscription through now - I have a GoPro and 3d gimbal waiting patiently to take to the skies!

Stage 37, fitting the LED connectors.
look at the board, to see its orientation and what goes where.There are 4 sockets for the LEDs from the rotor arms and a socket that already has a plug in it, this one is for the ESC connection, a red socket is on the end of the lead. At the rear of the chassis there is a space for the board with 2 clips, noting the path of the blue/black/red wire, this is taken to the rear and slotted into the recess on the right rear of the small square protrusion on the back of the chassis. once clipped into place the LED plugs can be plugged in, the connector from the rear left LED, plugs into the corresponding socket, as with front left and front right, the final socket will be plugged into the remaining socket when that arm is fitted at a later stage.

It will be noted that a space remains in both sockets, space for the final ESC. the Red plug on a short lead is plugged into the Red socket that comes from the LED board fitted in the previous stage.

Stage 42, The bracket for an action cam.
parts included are, bracket, a main support and 4 shock absorbers. M5x20mm screw, M5 nut and 2 grub screws.
Fit the rubber shock absorbers into the circular holes in the main support, when all 4 shocks are fitted,the carrying bracket is fitted to the other end of the shocks, the tower on the bracket passes through the support, fixing the two together is a little fiddly but do able.the grub screws go into holes on the underside of the main support. The M5x20mm bolt goes through the tower on the bracket with the M5 nut applied loosely. The cam carrier can now be mounted onto the two alloy tubes running under the chassis. ( hence the reason for them to be offset forwards). The grub screws are then pinched up, do not over tighten..
