DJI F550 Setup, Gimbal(Gopro3 black) naza+GPS ( first build )

Hello guys,
I am from the Netherlands and completely new to multiroters and would love to get some help . I have read many forums and watched so many YouTube movies that I just got crazy :P
So iíve compared some things and created a list of components that I want to use in my build. If there is anything not right or could be better tell me please.
List :

Spektrum DX18

Frame :
DJI F550 incl motors and esc

Transmittors with external supply :
ImmersionRC 2012 model 5.8Ghz 600mW AV Transmitter 2012 new version with receiver
Or :
New 5.8 Ghz wireless video system 1200mW Long Range
Website info :

Controller :
DJI Naza + GPS
DJI Wookong M
Iím not sure of the Wookong M is worth the price for me. In my opinion it only has waypoint and iosd function and nothing more. So I think I just stick with the DJI Naza + GPS
Laptop : Apple Macbook ( no Iím not an apple fan xD )

Landing gear with gimbal :
I really donít know! Iíve watched so many YouTube movies and I noticed most gimbals are just like crap. The only good one Iíve seen is the AG550-NX Landing Gear+2 Axis Camera Gimbal. Iím only going to use the GoPro3 black edtion and sony nex 5. But I canít find a shop in the Netherlands selling an AG550 with landing gear. Itís also expensive

4x RC1 5000mAh 4S 20C LiPo Akku
1x RC1 800mAh 3S 20C LiPo Akku for the transmitter

Lipo charger :
Not found one yet that can charge 4 lipo parallel in 1 hour. ( atleast 320 watt needed )

Graupner E-propellers:
3x E-Prop 10x5 25x12,5L
3x E-Prop 10x5 2512,5R

I think thatís it. Iím doing an electrical management engineering training so I think building is not a problem with all those building guides

Any tips or advise is always welcome! Thank you.
