Almost there , most cables in and right , Swapped UBEC's  around , the Heli one now power the Opto ESC's and the smaller UBEC give 5.27V to the APM , that should be good for the INPUT .
ST800 BumbleBee





ST800 Bumblebee 3DR RangeVideo



















APM mounted on top of Range Video Vibration Mount , Got Sticky Foil Underneath the mount and then EarBuds to mount Range Video onto another plate that got some more sticky Foil underneath that , mounted on Silicone dampeners , a bit hard ..., Roughly a Inch (31 mm) from top deck plate.




This JUST fit in under the canopy ...

Also FR SKY D8R mounted with 40CM antennas . Running one antenna down the Landing gear and the other on to arm number two .. Should get good diversity ..


Turnigy UBEC 5A ST800 BumbleBee









The Turnigy UBEC 5A was moved from the bottom plate to the top , I tried to move it as far as possible away from the APM ...








Here's a better view of the Silicone Dampners with Earbuds and Range Video Anti Vibration mount.


GPS mount ST800 Bumblebee









So I was on the verge of buying a GPS mount for HeiST when I stumbled accross a picture of parts  of one of these mounts ... HEY ! I can make that !



So I did ! In the Picture below the mount , made from pieces of stuff I had lying around ...





I did in the meantime made it shorter and also mounted the MediaTek GPS on standoff's (no picture)  .. Should work , with the Plastic mounts that I believe should sheer off incase copter thinks it's cool to land on its head ... thus protecting GPS a bit ...




Still to do ....

Balance Motors ...
Balance Props ...
Mount Telemetry ...
Setup Status LED's ... and think if I want a beeper , no use really with new firmware that does a spins of props when arming ...
Do LED strips ...

Start setting up APM ...
