CopterX 450 motor and ESC upgrade

I had problems with the newly built CopterX 450 drawing a high current and the motor getting warm. I have now replaced the CopterX ESC and motor with a Turnigy Plush and Turnigy 3450kv motor. The plush is shorter but fatter than the original CopterX ESC and the canopy can't be mounted centered anymore. It is only a cosmetic issue.

I forgot to program the ESC before wiring everything and had to do the programming by transmitter stick. Took me a while before I realized I had to changed to throttle endpoints to the get ESC to recognize 100% thottle stick.

Gave it a blade-less spin in the floor and it behaved as expected. But the baby woke up.
