Chamfer the carbon with some light sandpaper (make sure to use water)
Plan your layout BEFORE you cut your wires

how did you connect the capacitor and what size did you use?

master_jansens   Mar 31, 2019 

I just used some thin wire to conect in to the battery solder pads. It is a 35v 1000uf capactitor (ideal for 6s) and it was included in the all-in-one xrotor combo stack.

I just got the same stack and I put the same capacitor in with the wire method and ziptied it down on the backside of the cl-1 frame then put a 20x20 board over it on stand offs and attached my akk f3 to it. nice and clean. If I only plan to use 4s batteries do I still need that size capacitor? I know in the manual it says you need to use a capacitor or it will be damaged but I heard that even with the small capacitor it comes with the esc is burning up....

Is that just hot glue around the connectors? Is it just to secure them better?

If you are refering to the whitish stuff on the two xrotor boards, it came like that out of the box. Probably to secure it as you said.

So far they seem good. They are supper smooth and quite. When I was testing them, full throttle sounded like nothing. I can't say too much now becase to be honest, I havent had time to fly this thing FPV yet.

can you show some pictures on how u mounted the mach 3

Sure, I just added some pics. In case you can't tell, I uses some double sided tape. You can also use a zip tie.

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..
