That is well done Toby!!!

That is really helpful for many trying to build one.

Also do you think that the zip ties holding the motors are strong enough? The good thing about it is that you have that done really quickly and the motor just comes off with a crash but does it hold under pressure?

Great job Tobster !

I noticed that you also crossed the zip ties to secure the motors, that's good !
The best zip ties to use are the ones that have a little stretch in them.
I use the 2.5 x 60 el cheapo ones from HK and they work fine.
At least they hold the motors at full thrust.

I also see that you used the HK board and (if i'm correct) the KKMulticopter Black Board.
What is your experience between both ?

I think I am going to mount my two front motors this way then because the durability after crashes seems to be better like that.

Good idea! I like how you went on with Davids idea of using as many zipties as possible :D

Burg: i do have both kk boards, ive only used the flycam one so far becuz i havent flashed the hobby king board yet. but its deff better quality their gyros like the ones that are in a wii controller. not sure what there called tho, but it seems to be nice. now my tricopter only starts the motors up at half stick do you know why this is?

Nice idea. This tape (3M Dual-lock) holds soooo much better than typical velcro. I'm using it to hold registration plates in my cars, and as far as I know they even using it to mount boards on the truck trailers. Too bad it's so expensive. I used different idea for servo protection - servo arm mounted on the yaw mechanism axle with superglue - it's pretty strong, but on the other hand in case of crash it'll simply snap.
