I need recommendations for Brushless Motor & esc for my ArduPilotMega 2.0

I ordered the ArduPilotMega 2.0
I need recommendations for Brushless Motor & esc to my Quadcopter

My budget for this electronics about $ 100

Need to adjust for the 3-cell batteries

Second question
Is this frame in this way is supported by the board and if so is it recommended the sense of stability and performance

Is this OK?

I found these ESC:


These engines:

Yes, you can use this frame since the motor mounts form a standard quad. Can't tell about the durability and stiffness of this item - but the parts where the arms are mounted on the center plates look a bit short. If the center plate isn't stiff enough I'm afraid you can bend the arms up & down.

Other than that you can't go wrong at that price scale.

The other links are dead btw. You could use these Hobbywing ESCs:

and these motors (which look like Suppo motors):

10" props would do a good job. If you're a beginner in this hobby you should also order spare parts - especially some sets of props...

Agree with kinderkram, that setup should be fine. Suppo motors are decent quality for budget motors and Hobbywinf ESCs are the most common.

The frame should be decent enough, just be prepared for possible missing bits and pieces and no instructions. I got the X525 frame from GLB and it was basically a bunch of loose parts thrown in a box, got it together ok but some wrong sized bolts and pieces. GLB is a bit of the luck of the draw on what you get at times.

This is a good overview of what GLB can be like, matches my experience exactly. I still order from them but don't expect a high end experience.

I received today a similar hexa-frame from GLB. If the material of your centerplates is the same, it should be stiff enough in combination with those motors. The quality meets the price, especially according to the accuracy of the drilled holes of the arms.

But as a beginner, the lifetime of those arms aren't long enough to worry ;-)
(check your local dealer for some spare aluminium tubes, you might need them sooner or later)

Yep, i.e. these:

Do yourself a favour and order more than you think you'll ever need!
Trust me - you will need spares sooner or later.

I would give 9" or 8" props a try. 1000 kV with 52g motors on 3s with 12 a peak could heat them up to much on 10". (http://flyduino.net/Propellers)
