I finally took all the electronics off the ATG 600 and installed in on the x650 frame. Since I do not have any other motors to use I decided to try the iPower 2814 750kv motors for the time being. Over all the motors did fine. My flight time was not any better or worst compared to my hexa setup. But I still need to Naza gain settings.

I think the SIGMA SS series Motor Mounts is well worth the money because I was able to tuck in all the wiring and ESC to keep a clean look. I even ran an extra JST connector so I can mount some LED lights in the future.

Here is a view from the top, and the arm on the left has the cover open with all the wires exposed. The arm on the right you can see how much better it looks with everything tucked in neatly under the cover. This is only possible because the ESC compartment is much larger. The stock arms are a lot smaller, it is so small that the 30amp ESC would not even fit, I would have to strap it on the outside.

I bought an extra set of hangers and screwed it on a plastic square so I could mount the GPS on it. Since I have a shell that goes over the center of the frame, I wanted to mount the GPS out of the way when I remove the shell.

Here is a better view of the mount I made for the GPS. So far it works great and have not had any problems with it.

At the bottom of the frame I mounted a distribution board so it will have less wiring. The red circle is the distribution board. I swapped out the stock carbon fiber tubes to .375 carbon rods because the stock ones was too short. The carbon tubes that I bought are a bit smaller so I had to use grommet to keep them in place. Since I mount my gimbal on the tubes I need to mount it as far forward as possible so I do included the Props in my video. When I do that with the stock tubes I would not have enough space to mount the battery in the rear.

With the Naza pulled off you can get better look at the distribution board and all the wires underneath.

Here you can see here I am able to hide all the wires under the Naza so everything appears to be very neat.

Not long after mounted the iPower motors on the frame I posted an ad on RCG and sold it. I knew I wanted a different set of motors but I did not expected to sell it so quickly. In the mean time I mounted the 2216 900KV T-Motors on the frame. I was really surprised how strong 2216 T motors are. I tried 10, 11, and 12 inch props and it had no problems turning it with a 3s lipo. Even with the 12 inch props the motor did not get hot.
