Thanks for this helpful thread! I'm in the process of building my first quad, and I'm a little confused on the best choice for esc and motor.

I have purchased a Q450 frame with a kk2 board. The first question I have is regarding the esc. I have been reading that escs flashed with simonk are the best to use, and I see that rctimer sells preflashed escs. Would the better option be to purchase the preflashed escs, or buy the F-30A escs and flash them myself? Would it be a necessity to flash the F-30A escs if I go with them, or would they be ok to fly with the stock firmware?

Second, I would appreciate a little guidance on the proper motor to go with. I have read that lower kv motors are better if you intend to carry a gopro camera and seek stability in flight. Here are 3 1000kv motors, but I'm not sure which one would be the best option, if any at all.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
