I have been on RCG for a while now but have never wrote a whole lot. I have decided to change that and show my build of my quad.
It started off back in June with me seeing the DJI F450 Flamewheel kit for $199 at my LHS, The Great Escape in Greenville, SC. I figured that for that price I could build a 450 size quad on the cheap. So, with some guidance from my buddy Adam (verticalspark) pointed me in the direction of the MultiWii 3.0 from witespy. At the time it was $50, but the price has since dropped a little.
Well as the weeks went on, trying to save some money here and there for my project, my cheap project slowly turned expensive ... as it is with this hobby This was supposed to be a quad for just for acro but I ended up getting a few extras in case I decided to do some AP or FPV or both.
I hope and pray that this is everything that I am going to need for this thing. I already have a DX8 and AR8000.
