Im new in this world of arducopters and RC. The reason that Im here is because I have a Gopro and I really love the videos that can be made with this little bird.
I spent last week learning and looking for information, and now I have an idea about what Im going to do. Im going to buy the RTF quadrucopter, I think is the easiest way to start, and I will have enough time to learn how it works after the crashes... Im going to buy it on udrones (I think is the only web selling it), but I have read some people unhappy with their costumer service, I hope they are only a few and normally the sell had not problems.
Here I have a question, do I have to configure the FC, PID, and all this staff or is already setted up? If it's RTF (you only have to mount it, add the batteries and the reciever) I suppose its already done, but Im not sure.
For the transmiter I´m going to pick the turnigy 9x, it's really cheap and many people have it, so I think it'll work. Question: What's the maximum distance that it can work? does it (distance) depend on the model of transmiter or it's only depending on the frequency (2,4GHz)?
And I'm also looking for a cheap 2-axis gimbal, if someone know any ready to put it I'll be grateful.
And that's all, my travel has started and I hope to learn so much from you ;)
Oooh! Its great!! Thanks for the advise, I'll include it for sure!!
