Need some advice please quadcopter

I have a MX400 and the speed controll board is shot. I was looking at the electronics in the MX400 and find the quality lacking. I would like to buy some off the shelf electronics that would work in my MX400 (not too expencive). Are there any experts that can put together a pacage that could work and fit in my MX400?. I figure I have a frame and 4 motors I should be able to replace the electronics. Thanks for any advice.

i cannot find if it has normal ESCs if it does a multiwii control from hoverthings, DJI Naza or Hoverfly sport would all be nice for the frame as long as you want a normal controller, no GPS or autopilot functions.

the Naza and HoverFly Sport are very capable boards that produce smooth results... them multiwii are nice but require more tuning.... and PID tuning seems more like voodoo than a science

The mutliwiicopter paris 4.0 is nice

It smoked and caught fire and then 1 of the motors stopped. The other 3 still worked.

Anyway, is there anyone that can put together a package that will both fit and work well in the MX400 frame?. I will need all hardware wires and other stuff to go with the electronics. at a reasonable cost.This will be of great help for me. I had a bad stroke December 4th and am still recovering and my quad is kind of like therapy for me. As you might understand being a stroke victim makes it hard for me to compleate complacated tasks. Please if anyone can help me put this together I would forever be in your debt! THANKS!
