Hello all,

I just recently started flying a quad a little more than a month ago (still working on my flying skills), but I have picked it up fairly quickly and want to move to the next level, building my own.

I have been scouring the internet looking for everything that I can find about building quads and it is a little overwhelming. after some searching I have finally settled on what I want to build and have ordered all of the parts (just a matter of waiting for them to all be shipped).

The following is what I have put together for my build and would more than welcome any suggestions or opinions regarding this.  I am not going to set up FPV just yet but want to eventually on this rig.

 

Frame: Daya 550 Alien Carbon Fiber Folding    from fpvmodel.com

Motors: Set of 4 Sunnysky V3508-20 580KB Brushless    from ebay

ESC:  Set of 4 Hobbywing Skywalker -40A Brushless    from ebay

Flight Controller: Storm CC3D     from helipal

Power Distribution Board: Hobby King board     from hobbyking.com

Battery:  Turnigy 5000mAH 4S 40C Lipo Pack   from hobbyking.com

Propellers:  Set of 4 1238 Carbon Fiber   from amazon.com

                   Set of 4 9" 9443 Carbon Fiber    from amazon.com

Charger:  iMAX B6 AZ B6AZ Lipo Batter Balance Digital Charger   from ebay

Transmitter: FrSky Taranis X9d Plus 2.4Ghz w/X8R receiver  from ebay

 

Also a Tru Spin Prop Balancer     from amazon.com

and I will be using OpenPilot (have downloaded and installed and reading all documentation now).

 

I can't wait to start but will be taking my time once everything shows up (should have everything by the end of next week, fingers crossed).

 

Will document as much as I can and try to post pics of the build.

 

Scott
