Quadcopter ESC/Power PCB

I sat down today with Eagle PCB design software and designed a simple ESC / Power PCB. You can plug all your ESC's into it and it has jumpers that allow you to use the BEC from any of the 4 ESC's or by leaving off the jumpers you can Plug an external UBEC into a port on it. One cable hooks between this board and your controller outputs. This means that you do not have to remove the middle wire from any of the ESC's.
It is a PDF file. After opening it scroll down a bit to view it.

Anything which makes the wiring neater is great!

What I often wish is that boards like this were able to piggyback on top of a KK board. Same idea as with arduino shields. That way you could add what you need without the clutter of multiple boards wired together with yet more cables!

Piggybacking on a KK might be doable if I get better with Eagle. I will look into it.
