"Sorry mate but you will be hard pressed to build anything that will do what you need for $1,200? I am somewhat new to this myself but I have done considerable research on this intially thinking I could put something together for less a $1,000. Boy…"

"Hi Corey, I tried to contact you via email but I'm not sure if it got through to you. This post was done some time ago and I only just found it but no doubt you are still interested and maybe even have a system now? If you are still looking…"

"Hi, No I did not have an MQX. However just about everyone else I fly with have one. I learned flying with the coax heli MQX; that is also very good. The only ridiculous thing about it was that it came with a charger running off normal AAA…"

"One of the things you have to be aware is that multi rotors can climb faster than they can safely descend.  If you descend to fast vertically without any lateral motion the copter's blades will stall out in its own rotor down-wash and…"

"I agree 100%  I learned to fly these things before tackling a heavy lift CInestar 8 Multirotor.  You can bind them to any DSM2/DSMX controller.  You can crash them and crash them and crash them before they break.  I have broke…"

"No worries.  One of the things that I did not mention but is extremely important is a battery monitoring circuit, ie your "fuel gage."  There is ones that you can get that plug into the APM 2.5 Flight Controller.…"

"Hi, if you havent flown an R/C heli/copter before, get yourself a good quality indoor coax heli or one of the tiny quads. Dont buy the very cheapest, but rather something with a decent spare part availability. I like the E-flite Blade MCX and…"

Bite the bullet - ArduCopter not an option?

Hey, After a few weeks of trawling through the forums and countless google searches I am still left a tad confused. Firstly many people have told me to get a flight simulator before I try flying a quadcopter to ensure I have a minimal amount of crashes. This seems logical however I still do not know which simulator I should use. One very helpful member suggested these. http://www.microflight.com/FMS-Flight-Simulator…See More
