It is assembled much like the F-450, you solder the ESC's to the base then assemble the legs to the base. Note that the power connections to the battery are the opposite of the ESC's power connections.
The top piece does not have the holes for mounting the flight controller. I think they wanted the controller to be mounted on the bottom piece. The holes in the bottom piece fit a KK Controller nicely. I tried several other controllers and they all failed to work properly. Finally I tried a KK controller with LCD and it works almost every time. Sometimes I need to re-calibrate the gyros.
