first quadrocopter

Hope you guys all have a great day! i am after days of research about quadrocopter parts. I wantto build my first one and finally managed to write down what I plan on using for it:

Frame:  Quantum XJ470

Motors, esc's and props: E310 DJI

Flight Controller: NAZA m v2 with Gps

lipo: 4s 5000mah

Remote control: Radiolink AT10

Gimbal: Feiyu Tech 3D pro Mini

FPV reciever and transmitter: maybe the lightbridge1 ?? ...any suggestions?


what do I want to use my copter for?: i want to be as mobile as possible and have fpv gopro 5 footage taken without jello

Feel free to hit me with every better solution or info you could think of.

And thanks to everybody that replies!

  • Mavic is available on DJI official website and everyone could get the mavic in 5-7 business days.

    I have bought one and it looks fantastic and fly very stable.

  • Wrong reply ..

  • First the copter frame looks too low to support a gimbal before takeoff.

    Second NAZA can't control a three axis gimbal nor point it at a subject for taking pictures.

    It looks like your set on DJI products so I would buy a Mavic. It will do what the NAZA will never do.

    Hard case batteries are used in racing cars.  Quad Copters typically use soft lipo's.  It's a weight thing.


  • Hello Thomas Fischer,

    Nice post here, Yeach, Build your own drone you need shop all the parts not only Frame, motors above you list etc. but also have to buy reciever and transmitter and Camera, Antenna, flight controller, etc.

    If you have no more experiences, can bulid a quadcopter fpv250 or smaller,may be appropriate. and i suggest you buy a package which will contain all necessary parts of it. In this guide we will show everything in the example of Nighthawk 250 package.Here a article about Building your own drones may be helpful to you.

    Good luck!

"Wow, Ning2 looks really great on mobile. I had sort of drifted away as my browse-time went more on my phone, so this is great."
