Help!
Will these parts all work together? - (I'm a newbie)

Hi All, i am new to RC things and i have been wanting to build a quadcopter for a long time but always hesitated . I have flown an Ar drone a few times (Friends one) and i am ready to move on! I have come up with this list after doing a lot of research (2 days in fact) and am not sure if they are the right parts or if they will work together. As i said before, I'm a complete newbie. Here is my list of parts:

All From HobbyKing:

Hobbyking SK450 Glass Fiber Quadcopter Frame 450mm $19.25
NTM Prop Drive Series 28-26A 1200kv / 286w (short shaft version) $16.04 x4 $64.16
NTM Prop Drive 28 Series Accessory Pack $2.02 x4 $8.08
Turnigy Multistar ESC Programming Card $4.54
Turnigy Multistar 20 Amp Multi-rotor Brushless ESC 2-4S (OPTO) $9.76 x4 $39.04
XT60 to 4 X 3.5mm bullet Multistar ESC Power Breakout Cable $3.60
Hobbyking KK2.1.5 Multi-rotor LCD Flight Control Board $32.09
Hobby King 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx & Rx V2 (Mode 2) $26.82
HobbyKing ECO6 50W 5A Balancer/Charger w/ accessories $20.32
Turnigy nano-tech 2200mah 3S 25~50C Lipo Pack $19.25
Slow Fly Electric Prop 1045 SF (4 pc - Green) $3.28
Slow Fly Electric Prop 1045R SF RH Rotation (4 pc) $3.28

Total: $244

Are these parts good? Do you guys have any recommendations for other parts instead of what i have got here? My budget is about $270 max, don't want to spend to much on a quadcopter that I'm probably going to break since I'm still learning

Thanks

Yep, these parts will work together.

I'd step down to either 8 or 9" props though. Also, I'd highly recommend stepping up to 30A ESCs. Not only for future-proofing your quad, but to have a bit of margin in case you push it.

Why does everyone seem forget those HK 10 packs of 10 cm 3 pin servo wires to connect the Rx to the FCB?

I must have posted this reminder about 30 times in the past 6 months.

I also always recommend a better Tx than a 6 channel. At least get a Tx with a built in LCD screen for ease in Tx set up. I do not remember if the HK 6 channel Tx has a built in LCD screen.

Anyways good luck on your build and keep on practicing flying.
