Default XK X500 Aircam GPS Aerial Photography Quadcopter

XK Aircam X500. XK has done it again with the 0.5m deviation Return Home (RTH), now with a budget 500 size quadcopter GPS drone, an impressive entry since the days of DJI Phantom 2, and Walkera Tali H500 class. A large community of RC pilots have been raving about the sibling x380 size, can now move up the next size, 500mm wheel base. I am actually impressed and at the same time excited to see how KX progress in this path and look forward to reporting the next phase of engineering and design. This blog will be updated throughout the month.

More to follow.. and videos will be posted along quad series http://youtube.com/diydrone

Default Motor numbering

Bought a dismantled XK 500, can anyone tell me the motor numbering for the ESC plugs into flight controller? Is motor 1 top right when looking from above?
