For a $40 board option and the excellent build log Alex has posted at http://radio-commande.com/internatio...copter-design/
a little bit of learning curve to set it up with at for aerobatics is well worth the effort and the knowledge gained will help with any other later build and setup. The Multiwiicopter thread is here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1261382
Then you will feel relieved when you trash a $40 FCB in your quest for flying skills

crash and build a cheap quad a dozen times learning because of the lack of stableness then add up the cost, kk copter is not a quad for learning but rather a cheap quad to start flying, I feel more comfortable tryn things with my xbl or mk because they help you, diy ot kk types do not! just my 2 cents happy flying!
