I changed the 30mm standoffs for 20mm purple ones. I also painted the edges of the frame with an oil pen. I started to paint the Runcam and XT60 connectors purple too, but it was a little too much! I'll go over them with a black pen soon.


The D-Link is a great flight controller with a built in PDB. This saves on space, which is at a premium and makes it look a lot neater. The VTX and receiver sits just above the D-Link, attached to the bottom of the top plate with Velcro. Under the D-Link is the ESC, dampened with some 'O' rings.

Future Improvements

If I were to spend a little more cash on the build, I would probably buy a TBS Unify and mounting board, so it would look neater. I'd also consider a Runcam Split, but the additional space required for the board and larger camera might warrant taller standoffs.
