    ok, so we have parts, now, where are the install pics or instructions for help with this. I know the shell is the hardest part, were do we solder?

    When you get the shell off, you can see where the battery leads go into the board. You could probably just attach to that. Alternatively there are two sets of untapped power pads right next to it. I would suggest those but I haven't measure the voltage with a meter to make sure that it's directly off the battery.

    Lol, really?

    I assume that's with a battery mod, gimbal removed and just in a hover?
