Build something small like under 400mm and make it light. Everything is cheaper lighter. Like smaller motors, smaller battery. Or ones of those toy quads. You can get one under $100

You'll have better luck rummaging through the scratchbuilt threads.

Although the majority is good information, double check any recommendations and suggestions. There is a small percentage of individuals who have no clue, but frequent the threads.

Hey there. I can help perhaps. I'm not that experienced, I just started with RC 6 months ago, and have two quads now, a toy X200 and F450 go pro setup.

For what will you use quad (practice, normal flying, acrobatics, FPV, aerial photography), and what is your budget?
