****! That sucks Green! These little buggers definitely need a lot more attention than my Phantoms. I spent an hour or so changing props out, modifying a few settings and cleaning everything up after my short flights the other day. I got an electric air blower to help with getting the dust out of everything, works pretty good. I hope you can get back in the air quickly!
I've got a roll of this stuff at home. And it is good stuff. I didn't buy it retail though. I happen to know someone that works for the manufacturer. Just be careful what you stick down with it. make sure that you really want it to be there. Only thing I don't like about it though is that it is a little thick. 3M 4910 Double Sided VHB Tape, 3/4 In x 45 ft. - Walmart.com
I plan on shrink wrapping the ESC's along with the tape for isolation against the CF frame. tGO has me a little concerned "now" if this tape will be strong enough to hold my stuff (vTx & Rx) in place during an impact. I just don't like the looks of the tye's.
The VTX didn't move all that much, I am surprised it burned out. It just scooted back about a half inch and angled up into the frame. Probably if I didn't have the zip tie it would have been fine, but it pinned it up against the frame when it slid. I will be electrically isolating it better from the frame with the replacement, and only using tape. I also broke my antenna a little bit but might try soldering that back together.
Yea, I'm using the Gorilla tape as well. I think that and the electric tape is working well for me so far. The tie-wraps concerned me as well. So far nothing on mine has moved at all. I'd do the shrink tubing if I was building from scratch as you are doing.
I have had bigger crashes before than the last one, but have never broken anything but props and an RP-SMA connector before. I think I just mounted the VTX too tight with the zip tie. These things can take some pretty hard crashes without breaking.
