Armattan DIY kits. One stop shopping-Everything you need to complete the build. Here's an example: http://www.armattanquads.com/cf355-diy-kit/

Best,

Normally I would not recommend anything as spectacularly performance-designed as a Armattan for a newbie but I see by your other posts that you do have some experience.

Be aware that this is the equivalent of stepping out of a Yugo and sitting down in Maserati. The difference is literally light years.

The KK2 and such can be detuned down to diaper mode to learn orientation. Then turn up the agility to toddler mode to learn simple maneuvers and basic flight.

The -advantage- of going straight to an Armattan is that you're always flying the same quad and it will always behave very -similarly- as you turn up its -capabilities-.

As a relative newbie I still recommend buying a kit because you don't know how to design something from scratch. Even if get a standard frame you still need to use the -recommended- motors/ESCs/props. The kit will always cost less than buying the same parts separately.

Armattan kits for sure, best quad in the industry, hands down.

Why thank you, Marty. These tutorials are old now and things changed a lot since then in the hobby. But a lot of the basic info is there.

Best,
Chris
