Fantastic Resources:

While your are building your drone here are several websites, forums and YouTube channels that I highly recommend as awesome sources for great drone info:

  1. Bruce at RCModelReviews.  Particularly his cheap 250 quad series.
  2. RCGroups forums, particularly their multi-rotor sections.  Check out the taps for ‘beginners,’ ‘electronics,’ and much more.
  3. FPV lab forums, this is the best source for information on flying First Person View (cameras and video transmission).
  4. Gather inspiration from Mr. Steele (FPV flyer).  Particularly this video, it’s awesome.
  5. My favorite stores:
