Inside the box you’ll get:

  • the manual
  • 4 arms
  • a yellow orientation ball
  • some screws
  • all the fiberglass plates
  • some rods to hold the ball
  • a plastic screwdriver
  • some black hex threaded spacers for the flight controller
  • landing gear
  • and the box (obviously).

Now that we have everything out of the box, we can start by screwing the arms on to the bottom plate for the frame (I’m using a 2.0mm hex driver). on the bottom side, each arm only requires 2 screws (so 8 screws total for the bottom).

After that we can flip the frame over screw the top plate on. This process is almost the same but instead of 8 screws, there are 16.
