You can't go wrong with the Witespy quads with an extra tab or two for FPV gear and whatnot. Avoid the 580p+ if you can.

+1 on the witespy quad. I use the same frame and controller and it's a great setup to learn with and to keep flying as you gain experience.

The frame is from hoverthings.com and it is well cut and very tough.

Regards,
John

Most definitely YES. I recently bought the Naza and it is an amazing system, especially when you dial it in properly.

All depends on how you want to fly. The Quadrino MultiWii is a great flight controller and can work with both sport and video flying, but from what I have read, the Naza seems to excel at very stable flight that is well suited for video, but may not be the best for sport flying. There likely will always be a compromise somewhere.
