FPV rig

I didn't know budget was no problem. I got my drone for $200.
$130 to convert to 2.4Ghz control.
Functionality? What quadcopter functions are missing?

You could spend time flying your FPV or spend time building.

Building is fun.

I will throw this on a bigger helicopter and see how it goes.

I would never buy the AR Drone, it is too limited in functionality for the money you spend on it. Instead i am piecing together my quadcopter myself and the frame is the only thing i will purchase pre-built.
