15. Prop adapter – bolt on

16. Select this prop spacer – required for Green props only

17. ESC Wiring – you require 3 x clockwise rotation and 3 x counter clockwise rotation.

Connecting the motors wires directly to the ESC in the same orientation gives counter clockwise rotation

Taking the centre motor wire and crossing it to the outer tab on the ESC will result in clockwise motor rotation – check this before final soldering and mounting on the frame

SEE Video # 2 & Video

18. See video Video #4 and Video #5 for correct position of motors and propeller rotation

 

19. Positioning of rubber bumpers for GoPro – note 25 mm standoffs for GoPro 3, 3+ and 4
