Yes, it is located beside the receiver. Check the picture where the DR16 is shown.

I'm blind, I didn't realize that when I looked at first. Pretty well the same spot as mine but opposite side, I guess that's the only viable option

Hey Archangr,

Love your build, it's a big challenge to take on and more involved than people first think. It takes a lot of time, patience and commitment to get it to a flying model. :-) so congrats.

Thanks also for your donation :-)  I've got a few projects on the go but I've just bought a Prusa Mk3 (took the plunge) so it will go towards that and some filament ready for the next model. 

You are also now an Elite DIYRC Supporter, this doesn't really mean anything to be honest. BUT some say obtaining this title allows you special JEDI RC powers when flying your drones... All I know it's that I'm grateful and happy flying padawan.   
If you use any of my designs and can afford to donate to help pay for this site and the filament, or just buy me a beer then please click on the link below, enter an amount and donate what you want.

Hi Master!

Thanks for your nice comments, and yes it requires a lot of time and patience. I've bought my 3D printer 2 years ago for my wife, she is a Graphic Designer and wanted to start making 3D designs and print it. We first thought that it was an easy task and after thousands of YouTube tutorials and videos we gave up with a ton of frustration and the printer went to the storage room for almost 2 years.

Few months ago I started to get interest in drones specially the Mavic Pro, started to check reviews and I thought: there may be someone out there who had this thing 3D modeled and then I found this amazing site you created.

After almost a month of adjustments on every single part including the printer firmware, tons of trial and error and replacing defective and low quality parts, I could print the first leg of the drone, the rest is in this post.

Thank you again for saving my 3D printer to be sent to the dumpster.

Cheers!

Hi Patrick,

Of course yes!

I used SCIGRIP-16 plastic cement for modeling to bond the pieces (not necessary but I think it is better than nothing).
