If you've built a multirotor before you'll appreciate that there is a lot of wiring involved and it can be hard to keep all of it neat and tidy. This board has been designed to simplify the wiring and help keep it organised. It takes care of both power distribution and ESC signal wiring all in one neat package.
The board is designed for hexacopters so it features six ESC signal inputs labeled M1 to M6. The connections are outputted together respectively at the signal hub, ready for you to connect with your flight controller*. On the power distribution side of things, the board has six coaxial power ports to power your ESC’s and a couple of XT30 connectors to power auxiliary devices like UBECs and FPV gear.
The board comes completes with a full wiring harness. It comes with six coaxial power cables and six signal wires, ready for you to solder to your ESC's and then plug straight into the board. The cables are long; 66cm and 42cm respectively, so they have enough length if you prefer to mount your ESC’s under the motors away from the main frame. The package also comes with high current 10AWG power leads soldered to a 7mm gold plated Amass AS150 anti-spark battery connector. Finally, a foam adhesive pad is included which should be stuck to the back of the board to insulate it from your frame.
*Important: The signal hub does not have a positive connection, only signal and ground connections.

About Power Distribution Boards (PDBs): A PDB is used to distribute power from the flight battery to the speed controllers (ESCs) and other auxiliaries. They make for a tidy and reliable installation. The alternative is a bird’s nest of cables back to the flight battery and a higher risk of bad connections over time, as connecting/disconnecting your battery will tugged on your wiring. Additionally if you need to replace an ESC you will have to cut into the wiring harness to detach it, with a PDB it's simply a case of unplugging/desoldering a connection. That said, if you are only wiring up a small quadcopter and space is tight, a wiring harness might be a better and lighter solution. Great consideration should be given to your power distribution, as any failure in the system will likely result in a loss of power to the motors. In this regard ensuring that your solution is able to handle the peak current draw from your electronics is top priority.
