Need HELP with build!

I am planing to build up the xhover stingy frame and I have a few uncertainties.

1. I want to use the Betaflight f4 fc but I don't know where to solder my spectrum receiver that takes 5v.

2. I also want to use the wrath 32 v2 escs but I am wondering how I would solder the motor wires because they don't have full pads.

3. In my previous builds I've always used the tbs unify HV and just hooked it up to vbat and then powered the camera with the vtx. However this time I would like to use the tbs unify pro V3, would I wire it just like shown in the diagram above and instead of supplying vbat, just connect the positive lead to a 5v power output. The betaflight f4 is limited to 1500mA in total will this be enough to support the camera, receiver and the now the unify (on 800mW)?

Thank you for all your help.


Wake up! Time to fly!
Each of these parts has their specs listed on their products page, and there should also be links for their pdf operators manuals that have more detailed information as well as connection diagrams. These are your friends and should be gathered with every piece of hardware you use. I keep all mine in a folder on my computer so I have handy references not only for myself but easy information already gathered to help others with.

That all said the half moon esc pads can be used two ways. You can solder on top like normal to keep wires straight and neat it just takes a bit of skill to do. The other ways is to fit the stripped end in the half rounded spot so the wire runs down to the frame or the opposite where it has a little arc to it on its way to the motor.

For your receiver you can power that from any spot labeled +5 and ground. Its the placement of the signal wire to the proper port that matters. There is a nice video right on the product page for your FC that tells how to hook most of your stuff up.

The VTX is rated to run on 600MA of current @800mw that leaves 900ma head room for the receiver. I am not sure if that 600MA covers powering the camera from the VTX but there should still be plenty of headroom for a receiver and camer after the 600MA.

Anyway use the manuals to help you. They really are a great tool to learn to use and super handy to have at the click of a button.
