Noob Building a Tricopter


I'm looking for some help on a build.

I have a frame, I just need to make sure I'm ordering the right motors, esc's, servo, power dist...etc. I want to use a KK2.0 board, but otherwise parts don't matter. I just need to know that I'm getting the right things.

This is my list:
KK2.0 Multi-rotor LCD Flight Control Board
Slow Fly Electric Prop 9047R SF (4 pc Right Hand Rotation)
Slow Fly Electric Prop 9047R SF (4 pc Left Hand Rotation)
3x Turnigy Multistar 30 Amp Multi-rotor Brushless ESC 2-4S
3x D2826-6 2200kv Outrunner Motor
1x Servo Extenstion
Quad Power Distribution Board with XT60
Turnigy nano-tech 2200mah 3S 45~90C Lipo Pack (XT60)
Corona 919MG Metal Gear Servo 1.7kg/ 12.5g/ 0.06sec
Turnigy 9X 9Ch Transmitter w/ Module & 8ch Receiver (Mode 2) (v2 Firmware)
Y-3 Fiberglass Tri-Copter Frame (KIT)

2200kv is way too high, look closer to 1000kv
If it's your first I'd give that frame a miss. I have seen a few and they don;t look good for someone learning. Just build a simple pine frame you can fix.
Look for rcexplorers tricopter model. easy to build and all the gear you need if listed
