Lantian X143 1306 Quadcopter Build Log

I bought a Lantian X143 carbon fibre frame from banggood  during a recent sale so here is my build log.

The Lantian X143 frame is really nice but super tiny and mine didnt seem to have any mounting holes for my flight controller etc, but, seeing as i was using a diatone mini f3 flight controller that has 27mm mounting holes i ended up drilling my own holes and 3d printing m2 standoffs (the diatone f3 mini uses m2 bolts for mounting).

Next problem i had 3 working ESCs and 2 that had met their maker after a nasty crash…. So after some delicate desoldering of the 3 working surface mount components from one ESC and soldering them onto the other  we have 4 working ESCs (see pictures – component being soldered is the little black cube at the end of the tweezers)

After this was done it went together fairly well but was a little fiddly just because of its tiny size!

I havent put any fpv gear in this yet but will probably end up mounting an all in one cam/vtx probably in a 3d printed mount.

Anyway here are some pictures and my parts list…
