Hexacopter build list help

Hi all,

I been looking in to buy myself a hexacopter 550 size. So I turned my eye to ebay I found plenty of stuff. But as a newbie to hexacopters I don't really know what I need and on hobbyking I can't find any rtf/arf kits.
So if anyone would like to guide me or point me somewhere where I can find a guide that shows what I need I would be very happy.
I m thinking of a dji 550 naza so I get gps positioning and altitude hold, and in the future a gimbal with fpv and so on. I am an old rc helicopter flyer so I have some knowledge about rc flying but it has been a couple of years since I was in the "game"

The items I have found on ebay is this:
DJI F550 Hexacopter w/ ESCs Motors Propeller
NAZA Lite GPS ARF MultiCopter Kit *1
Wild Scorpion 11.1V 5500mAh 3S 30C Li-po Battery energy sources Multi-rotor heli *2
FrSky 16 channels TARANIS X9D Digital Telemetry Radio Transmitter & X8R-PCB RX *1
This will end up in around $950 but I feel I would like to order this stuff from hobbyking (feels safer) and maybe this part list is totaly off.
Any guidance is appreciated.

Regards

Hello-

Might not want to limit your search to HobbyKing ONLY and, yes, they have some screamin' deals....I've made several buys there...BUT

Check these if you haven't already:

http://team-blacksheep.com/

http://www.readymaderc.com/store/

http://www.dronesvision.net/en/

http://aerialmediapros.com/store/

I mention these because I've had good dealings with all, especially ReadyMade RC

I'm in the process of building a DJI 450 using Frsky x8r receiver, Naza Lite with the Taranis and I'm having a heck of a time getting everything to talk, are you that far along with your build?

Best Regards
