Stage 50, remaining parts of the chassis.
You will need the numbered stickers for the ESC wires, the 3 parts of the chassis, front from stage 33, the rear from stage 48, and the top from stage 34, also required are 12 M2x12mm screws from stage 34 and finally
the LED cable connector from stage 37..
slot the front of the chassis into place, it will be held in place by two of the screws through the chassis top.remove the number 1 sticker from its backing and affix it to the wires from number 1 ESC,(the front left) Likewise, number 3( to the front right)ESC. the number 2 goes ( on the rear right), therefore leaving number 4 ( to the rear left). ALL positions are viewed from the rear.
Having marked all the ESC cables the chassis top can be fitted, Pass the four plugs through the square hole in the top cover, Put the cover in place, aligning the screw holes, put the front and rear chassis members into their respective places and insert screws, ensuring that no wires are trapped or sticking out, insert all 12 screws and tighten up a touch, when certain no obstructions are around, tighten all, do not over tighten as they can strip out..Almost Finally for this stage, fit the LED cable connector from stage 37 into the long socket on the rear LED board And now the last piece to complete the chassis,connect the LED power wire to the rear LED board, fitting the rectangular plug into the final socket.

You should follow the steps that tomick had posted: the ESCs are too close.
Motor & ESC connections
6. The ESC bullet connectors and four ESC's should must be located as far as possible from the centre of the chassis. If these components are too close the flight controller, your Sky Rider may drift or fly in a circle when in the GPS Position Hold mode. Loss of orientation in the Headless mode is another problem that may occur.

7. The motor to ESC connections should be as close a possible to the motor arm.

8. The two front ESC's should be as close to the front of the chassis as possible. The rear ESC's should be as far away from the centre of the chassis as the wires will allow.

9. The ESC bullet connector adaptors which supply battery voltage to the ESC's, should be located centrally between the ESC's along the centreline. These connectors should be about 75mm from the front on the chassis.

10. Twist the wires together from the bullet connectors to each ESC at least 9 times.

Here you can see the position of my ESCs. Smile
