Power Distribution Boards
Power Distribution Boards(PDB) are one of the simplest components on a Multi-rotor and therefore are one of the easiest to choose. There are 3 main points that should be considered when choosing a PDB for your multi-rotor: Size and layout Voltages and Current Capability (on board voltage regulators) Additional features It is necessary to have a good idea of what parts you will be using in your multi-rotor build in order to make sure that you choose a PDB that will have the right features and be able to support the power consumption of all the components. Size is relatively straight forward, however is worth mentioning because PDB come in all shapes and sizes. Some are made specifically for certain frames while the majority use a 30×30 standardized mounting. Depending on the frame you have chosen, there may be a custom Power Distribution Boards available which may replace a Carbon component in the frame and greatly simplify the wiring and cleanliness of the build. If your frame does not have a dedicated Power Distribution Boards available, you need to choose one that will suit your intended build. This is where it is necessary to have a good idea of what other components you intend to use.
