    I see putting some type of locktite on screws while building is recommended. I want to get the F450 flying well before adding the gimbal, camera, and FPV system. Is it difficult to remove the screws on the top plate to install those components at a later date? If I want to shorten the leads on the escs to the controller what type of pins do I need to buy to use the same connector? I believe I have a crimper with various dies to get the pins attached.

    Thanks

    If you use standard blue Loctite it won't be hard to remove the screws from the body plates/arms. In fact on my 550 even though I always use it on those attachment points I still need to tighten and re-apply the Loctite every so often.

    These are the connector housings that fit the keyed ports on the NAZA: http://www.hansenhobbies.com/products/c ... rs/sc_fjh/

    Here's the terminals for them: http://www.hansenhobbies.com/products/c ... /pt1in_ft/

    That same place sells an awesome ratcheting crimper if yours won't fit those: http://www.hansenhobbies.com/products/c ... /crimp_dx/
