Hello everyone! This is my first post to the site though I've been following for over a year. I'm finally to the point where I would like to begin purchasing equipment for my first Easy Star Drone.
Background: I have successfully built and flew my Blimpduido kit. I've also been flying around for a a couple months the Hobby Zone Champ (RTF). This has been the extent of my RC/Drone background though I have been playing around with Arduino on other projects for over a year.
I would like to purchase the Easy Star Kit and buy all the components separately due to my lack of knowledge in RC plane hardware. This is where I would like to get suggestions for mid-range servos, controlers, recievers/transmitters, batteries, motors, etc... I'm not familiar enough with rc brands or quality.
I'm pretty sure I'm going to stick with the Easy Star due to the overwhelming positive reviews I've been seeing over the past couple months, however, any and all suggestions for the actual plane kit are welcome. I'm mostly interested in areal photography and possibly video.
As this is going to be my first UAV/Drone other than my Blimpduino I will happily take suggestions for the best way to approach the build, rc hardware, photo/video hardware, etc... I plan on purchasing the plane first and getting familiar with it then after about two weeks (aka payday) I'm planning on purchasing the "drone" hardware.
Thanks for your suggestions and I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!
