Diving into my first build!

Two weeks ago I had little knowledge about RC, very little knowledge and zero experience with MRs. Up until yesterday, I was settled on finding somebody to build my setup.

With reading more and talking to some helpful people, I've decided to build a DJI F450 with NAZA/GPS on my own!

The only things I'm nervous about are the setup/configuration/calibration of the motors, naza/gps, and the Futaba 8FG Super I'm about to purchase. Somebody has offered to give me detailed instructions and settings for those things so I feel a little more comfortable now.

I've been researching prices and may buy my gear by the end of this weekend.

Here's what I'm looking for as of now:

DJI F450 ARF - 190.00
2 extra DJI stock motors - 45.90
2 extra DJI stock ESCs - 41.90
8 inch graupner (8) - 71.60
3x 5400 lipo 35C - 296.85
1x Hyperion 606i AC/DC - 109.95
Naza and GPS - 399.00
Simple/basic landing gear

I have or am about to get all the needed tools.
