Help with electronics
Gona be doing my first scratch build and i decided on doing the one on the Flite test website the 'FT Flyer' seems pretty simple to do and they have a nice video on it. But since i live in India i need help the electronics, now i dont really wana buy from hobbyking and all those wesbites becuse ill have to wait for a long time and they'll have chargers on the delivery so could anyone please help me out from choosing my electronics on www.rcbazaar.com? if you could suggest me all the electronics on that site itll be a big help, i have looked at few of em but id leave it to you guys becuz youll know it better.

That store doesn't have exactly the setup you'd need, but it's possible to get close enough.
The typical motor for the FT Flyer is a 24g "Blue Wonder" style motor. RCBazaar doesn't have one, but this is fairly close in terms of size and thrust:
You'll need a roughly 12A ESC. This should be fine:
You also need 2 9g servos, like these:
Do you have a radio system? I have no idea how well this radio would work, but it's probably good enough to start with:
That site does have Graupner radios, which are quite good - Flite Test uses them now.
These props should work OK:
Finally, this battery is in about the right size category for a Flyer:
One problem I see is that your ESC has a T-style connector and this battery has a JST Adapter. You can cut off the T-plug from the ESC and replace it with a JST from here:
JSTs don't get soldered on, they get crimped onto the wires, so that will save you some soldering. But be careful when you put on the connectors - look at some YouTube videos first to see how it's done.
Do keep an eye on how heavy your plane is. I don't know what kind of foam you can get in India, but you want to make sure your weight is right about where it's listed on the Flite Test plans to make sure it flies well.
Good luck with the build!
