Value Hobby Quadcopter components

I am new to helicopters.
I am new to RC.
I am almost 70, but never had a well-functioning brain...and it's not getting better!

So let me ask you guys this question:

Value Hobby has these components for a quadcopter:
ST450 folding metal frame
KK compatible control board
Multi-rotor power board
Emax CF2822 brushless motors (4)
Hobbywing Skywalker 20A ESC (4)
Props - 2 regular and 2 counter rotating

The whole thing is about $120

I have been assembling parts for RC planes and have both Futaba 72MHz TX and RXs and a Spektrum DX7 with multiple RXs.

Is it possible to make a working quadcopter with these parts?
Is the learning curve for the control board too great for a beginner?

Any input would really be appreciated!
