Then I decided to look and see what it would cost to buy the rest of the parts to build an X6. When I found out I could probably do it for less than $30 with things I already had on hand, I got serious about ordering the parts. I found out I could order the body and gears on Amazon for $1.19 using my Amazon points. I got the fcb and battery door from Banggood. Ordered the motor mounts from Gearbest. And already had bearings to replace the bushings. Not counting the bearings because the motor mounts actually come with bushings, I ended up spending $25.73 US for the parts.
