This guide will walk you through building your HobbyRC Ready To Build 250 Class Quad Kit. If this is your first build then we'll try to make everything as easy to follow as possible. If you've made a quad before then that's fine too, just ignore anything you already know. You will need to be able to use a soldering iron - if you've never used one before, it's not too difficult and with a little practice you should be fine (here is a good resource for learning to solder: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/project_ideas/Elec_primer-solder.shtml#overview)
Things You'll Need:
- HobbyRC Ready To Build 250 Class Quad Kit
- A soldering iron and some solder
- A Battery (suggested battery)
NB - It's worth nothing that in our kit we don't include a transmitter, receiver or battery and you'll need these to fly your quad. Since people often have more than one multirotor build, they tend to use the same TX/RX/batteries on multiple builds. For this reason, we decided to let you buy your own (or use one you already have). In either case, you need any 6 channel transmitter and compatible receiver (probably of the same brand) and a 2200mAh 4S battery (LiPo or LiFePo4).
Step One - Mounting Your Motors
For this step you will need the 4 x Emax 1806 2280kV motors and the Diatone G10 FPV250 frame. Take one of your motors and one of the circular mounting plates which came with your frame. Screw the mounting plate to the motor as shown in the images below.
