The F45 seems to have a pretty decent setup from a totally n00b's perspective. I've flown about as far as I dare and never had any issue with control. If I tried an FPV setup I would guess I'd end up going further still.
Anyway... what I'm wanting to understand is what I would do if I bought something like the Turnigy 9x or a Futaba or whatever. Does the rx replace the pcb completely or do you connect it in somehow? I'm searching google and it seems like that the RX usually does all the work but what I'm not understanding at this point is how do things like gyros, gps, etc. come into the picture?
Look at the pictures of the latest conversion I on the brushless tail motor. That's exactly what I used, and Turnigy 9X transmitter and a Flysky 6 channel RX. I used that RX because that was all I needed and I had it and did not want to waste the Turnigy RX.
As for the kit at topstoys, all I can sa is beware. The throttle channel in the PCB for the brushed motor does not supply a constant voltage. It is stick dependent. If it is only suppling say 4 volts at low throttle, I can't imagine the ESC not shutting down from low voltage and also getting hot, again from low voltage. Remember, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
Once you get it, if it does not work, you are probably out your money as Chinese vendors do not often honour warranty. Buyer beware.
