Build me a Multirotor
Title says it all. My wife wants to get me a multi rotor for Christmas, but I can't let her pay $1000+ for a premade one.
I'm looking through what Hobbyking has to offer. My goal is to fly it fpv with a small video camera hanging off of it. I already have the FPV gear, so all I need is a frame, flight controller, speed controllers, motors, and props.
I was thinking of getting the Hobbyking KK2.1 Multi-rotor LCD Flight Control Board With 6050MPU And Atmel 644PA for my flight controller. Good idea?
How about a frame? Since I'm putting a $300 or so camera under it, should I get a 6 motor or 8 motor copter for piece of mind?

Check out what Paul has to offer on his site. He puts them together and tests them before he sends them to you.
And you won't spend a grand getting a quad in the air. Good luck.

a little list
I fly the Titan tricopter from Fortis Airframes. Check out Zach's demo video, SWEET!!
I use the APM 2.5 Flight Controller with the $18 GPS system for peace of mind (love the Return To Launch feature).
I like the SunnySky motors. If they're good enough for Matt Hall's flying, they're more than enough for me.
For Speed Controllers, any ESC with 30 Amps and flashed with the SimonK firmware should do.
For props, I learned the hard way that if you order cheap props, you usually receive cheap quality props. These APC multirotor props are popular, and Annie Torres at APCProp.com is the best!!!
Good luck! Happy Holidays!!!
