  1. ask in the comments for help or queries about why i have chosen the parts that i have for this list/guide forgive the blue background of text, this was copied from another forum to this one and it's copied the background colour, will fix shortly all recommendations are just that, if you know of a product that your prefer and want get that instead, this is for a beginner to intermediate build with everything you'll need for the fpv experience all prices are in AUD soz america you're not the only ones in the world little drones to get started to see if you like flying around (needs transmitter, receiver and goggles to fully use add 200 for those or 70-90 for just the transmitter and receiver) ready to fly more expensive prebuild quads, good quality, trusted not to fuck up. ready to fly cheap prebuilds that are ok ready to fly cheap unknown quality almost ready to fly prebuilds (need transmitter and reciever) good build but pricey ESTIMATED COST FOR CUSTOM BUILT DRONE: 820 dollars excluding postage for items frame this one is really up to you what you want it to look like, though go carbon fibre, 4mm or higher, ask first before you buy as some are really badly designed 5 inch props max but that's all you need VERY STURDY, needs edge cleanup when you get it flight controller currently only one i recomend motors good reviews recommended choose all cw motors good reviews untested not many reviews but so far so good esc's (recommended for 4 s batteries) (recommended for 3 s batteries) pdb and osd ( no xt60 direct solder) (xt60 direct solder) recommended (needs separate cable to connect no xt60 direct solder) (pdb only xt60 direct solder) (osd only no current sensor unless added, difficult setup) batteries only buy 5-6 3 cell batteries to get used to it then go to 4 cell and buy as much as you want, batteries are considered a consumable as lipo batteries are fragile and fickle, very diminishing returns as price goes up. many have different performance characteristics a general rule is get a battery that supports 50+ amps continuously for roughly 20+ seconds bursts, rule of thumb is amp hours times the C rating equals amps ie 1500mah battery at 65C 1.5 x 65 = 97.5 amps max output, buy in bulk as the shipping has an initial fee for transporting lipo's. 3s 4s camera don't ever get anything else unless it's a newer version TRUST FOXEER (optional, changes field of view lower mm = higher field of view recommend 2.1) video transmitter (vtx) choose one and stick with it as they burn out easy and if you have spares prepare them to be fitted before hand for quick swap to frame. (side connector, dip switch channel select) (bottom connector, button channel select) recommended vtx antenna recommended (choose RP-SMA connector) (choose RP-SMA connector) (attempt to make this if you want, heard nothing but good things about it as it's one of a hand full of pcb antennas) video reciever (vrx) will not need if the chosen goggles have a receiver already i use this on my cheapy box goggles works a treat both vtx and vrx video goggles cheap and good box goggles, lightest box goggles (recommended to start off with) very cheap, heavy, needs vrx, no bells and wistles most feature packed compact goggles EXPENSIVE transmitter and receiver combos you need to stay with the brand unfortunately as they're all fucked and won't play nice with each other best one i can recommend for beginning, good, cheap, uses i-bus best one i can recommend for intermediate to expert, good, expensive, light, cheap extras, uses i-bus the one that ever pro fag has, good but needlesly expensive uses s-bus reviews are good, expensive, no serial receiver communication receivers small, cheap, no signal diversity, uses i-bus (recommend you replace the IA6B you get with the i6 transmitter or replace the IA10 with the i10 transmitter) props (my fav) battery charger highly recommend if you continue with hobby recommended for beginning misc crap you will need need lots they break after a bit never enough spare bolts non conductive for a separating the fc and pdb off the frame to charge multiple batteries at the same time, rule of thumb is charge batteries within 0.1 volt per cell of each other max they are worth their weight in gold, emergency battery/electronics holder heat shrink 13 or 14 awg wire red and black for battery connection 18 to 20 awg wire red and black for esc connection electrical tape best to get one or two extra motors and esc's for repairs tools or similar 63 37 tin to lead mixed solder, utectic meaning it goes from liquid to solid almost instantly at the right temperature soldering tips or a decent set of hex drivers, don't go cheap miscelainious small screw drivers get a good set, don't go cheap optional stuff so other can watch you crash from first person view recording camera and mount good and cheap for a action cam cheap and ok good gopro hero or session, really good, expensive tantalum surface mount capacitors to replace big bulky electrolitic capacitors on esc's, series increases voltage, paralell increases capacitance soldering helper and/or desktop magnifying glass (optional)
