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.

now we can install the mounting plates for the motors, they require 3 screws each.

We’re almost done with the frame, all we have to do now is mount the landing gear. There are only 2 screws for each arm (1 on each end).
