Hi Jerry,

I am gonna try out the Emax Femto FC, and a 10A 4in1 Cicada ESC. The femto is super tiny, I hope I can solder it up. Hard to find some micro stuff right now, the cicada wasnt really my first choice but looks good.

Already own a diatone 130mm crusader, waiting on sidewinder 8520 motors to complete a brushed micro including a brushed spracing f3 evo fc, qx90 frame and boldclash 25mw camera/tx. Ordered an ix5 iFlight kit last week, coming in today, hopefully not too late. The motors are 2500kv, the reviews on em are good so we'll see

Hey green and Jerry,
I bought the FrSky XSR 2.4ghz 16 channel ACCST receiver
S-bUS CPPM output...i read on Alofthobbies web site that this receiver cannot use aomway 5.8 4 leaf clover antennas because the antennas have to be soldered...do they mean that after the receiver is soldered i can use the aomway antenna?

Thank you kindly
Keith

The receivers for the controllers just use a little piece of straight wire that is built into the receiver (or two wire antennas for diversity). The cloverleaf ones go on the FPV video system TX and RX.
