    I have since sold all my f210 and moved on but for anyone seeking a cheaper better esc here is the solution. Eachine V-tail 210 FPV Drone Spare Part Emax lightning 20A ESC BLHeli 2-3S
    I tested them with over 50 packs running red bottoms and they are great.

    If the motors spin the wrong way just switch any two motor wires around to change direction.

    I really like that framedesign you got there. What topplate did you use? If you don't mind me asking :) And the standoffs are 35mm?

    Top plate? Nah its the bottom plate from a eachine wizard just chopped and drilled to fit. Standoffs were indeed 35mm. It's a much much stronger design than the original imo.

    Thanks for the reply. Will try this out. Looks like it has more camera protection and saves a lot of weight.

    It's good but i don't know if it's worth the effort i think overall it was 10g lighter. You need a dremel with a cutting disc and a drill press.

    Ok, so not that much weight loss. Still going to try this out. I have a dremel. I don't have a drill press, but drilling out the holes with a normal drill should work too right? Just need to be real precise with my measurements :)

    Yeah go for it all mods are reversible anyway so you dont have anything to lose besides money if you stuff it haha. i have a heap of pics somewhere of it.

    Also you will need to trim the tips off the props and match them up otherwise they hit on the front pillars. It's not much but it has to be done, i actually thought of a way around it but decided snipping the tips is easier and has no real downside on the flight.

    Use a step drill like these. This ensure you get the hole centres exactly correct with a normal drill or electric screwdriver.
