Hi guys, Like Alain, I'm new to quads and would like a recommendation.

I'd really like to try some FPV with a GoPro to get some nice HD Vid.

I'd also like a system that was relatively simple to DIY, tune and the like and that has proven to be super stable. plus gps position fixing too.

At some point it would also be nice to convert from a quad to octa so a platform with that option would be good.

cheers

Mat

Hi Ken,
Looks like the Papparazzi and the Quado Frame folks and Area52Mosdfets no longer sell frames. The others seem to work OK. Any other specific links that are broken, please let me know and I will fix. Dex Frame thread added. I could not find a store link for those?
Cheers,
Jim

Gents,
All links in posts 1 and 3 of the Quadrocopter and Tricopter Mega Link Index have been checked using a link checker application: http://download.cnet.com/REL-Link-Ch...4-9426104.html

There were 1360 links and 5 were found bad and fixed. Please let me know if you find any broken links and I will fix them.
Thanks and Cheers,
Jim
