Need advice on parts

Hello, I am rather new to the building of copters, and I am currently in the process of building a quadrotor. I have a small parts list that I am hoping to use, but I am unsure of whether these will all work fine together. Could anyone tell me if I should change anything? The final build should be a little less than a kilogram.  Also, I am considering using an xbee module to communicate between a computer and the arduino uno I am hoping to use, will this be sufficient, or should I use a different wireless method?

Another thing, will a rectangular body make it much more difficult to control?

  • Hi Kevin,Personaly, I don't like the prop saver system, will give you a lot of vibration problems! But... The motor by its own is a good  one. this is my opinion.
