Will this Work??( My first attempt at a quad)


Well i have decided to build a quad copter and have a few questions. And by the way, i am on a very tight budget. I have many sizes of 3 cell lipos.(500mah-2200mah)
Motors: FC 28-22 Brushless Outrunner 1200kv
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...er_1200kv.html
-will these motors be a good choice for a quad? I think i have heard of other people using similar motors
-any other super cheap motors that are a better choice(5-12 dollar range)
-what is the recommended size I should build the frame?(i will be using hollow 3/8 inch square carbon tubing)
-what props?(I am thinking around 10x5)

Thanks,
Brett

go with 2208 or 2212 size motor. 1100kv and 8 x 4.5 props

1800-2200mah 3c perfect with this set up.
