Ground plate/shield

Where in the stack do I put this (the shield on the left of the photo!)? I have ESC on bottom, then FC then the RC split (not that the HD works yet) on the top?

Never put it on on the previous build, but better do it this time round!

I’d say on top of the ESC to minimise the noise from the fast switching FET’s being induced into the flight controller, or whatever you have mounted above it.


I see it’s possibly an all in one board, but the suggestion to screen from other components on your quad still stands.

Thanks Nidge, that was my thought. Yeah FC above ESC board… Will have fun with this later. Though gotta wait till I get my conformal coating before putting it all together.
