Thought I would make some more room for the esc wires down each side of the controller.
I removed the 3 long tabs on the sides of the controller as you dont need them, the controller is recessed into the base and the battery base sits on top of the controller. Its not going any where.

ESC arrived and they are tiny, it was a tight fit with no room.
I soldered one wire first and then tested the rotation before doing the other two wires.
Once the four arms were done I fitted them onto the body and checked there ok when folding.
Connected up the power wires and XT60 connector.
Powered it up and all motors spin in the correct direction.
Now waiting on props to fly it.

Props arrived today, Yahoo !!
Well they weren't the right size with a 2.5mm hole and to thin for the prop adaptors, so I drilled them out to 3mm and fitted
a spacer under them.
Was waiting for bad vibrations but they seemed ok for now.

Wow.. super steady, you have to be impressed with it. Great build without a doubt :-)  Done in a short time too, well compared to my original one which was months and months.  Be interested in how the legs hold up to any heat generated by the esc's, but they fit well, nice find.

Thanks

If the esc get hot and start to melt the legs, then I will make that area a little bigger with more breathing room.

@ MKC2

Hi, I'm currently looking for ESCs for my Emax XA 2212 980KV engines that fit in the modified arms.

What are the ESCs you have installed?

Thanks you
