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