ESCs on the controller board


#1

The v2.5 instructions do not say anything about it, but are we supposed to glue the ESCs to the controller board? Mine are sort of wedged in but I can't make them look all straight and even like in the photo. If I glued them down they would align better.

Do folks glue these down or just wedge them?

There should be some double sided foam tape that is used to stick them to the control board.

Jim,

What we do is wedge the ESCs and tuck them against the headers of the controller board. Adhesive is hopefully not needed because once you place the beaglebone on, it'll assist in keeping the ESCs from popping back up.

Hopefully that helps!
