Micro Build Info (2017-2018 Winter Season)

Micro-build parts list

For my own sanity I'm going to try and keep a running list of some of the builds & parts that I hear about on Facebook for micro (2"-3") drones. Feel free to drop me comments if I've missed anything. The goal is to identify the best components for micro builds

Beware of M2 and M3 Holes Not all flight controllers and ESCs will work with one another. Some manufacturers are choosing to use M2 instead of M3. M2 screws are lighter but offer less structural stability than M3. Don't buy an M2 FC and an M3 4in1 unless you have some adapters you plan to use!

Cheers,
