Greetings all. First off, wanted to introduce myself to everyone. I'm a 46 yr old dad trying to help my daughter build her first drone. We decided to 3D print the T4 MiniDrone off of Thingiverse. Here is the link:
Well after learning what components in general we need (props, ESC, power supply etc..), we started shopping around and just was overwhelmed with all the different choices. I've learned the hard way (not by choice) of making mistakes and ordering the wrong things, so I want to try to avoid that error hopefully this time by asking people smarter than I. Can anyone here recommend a list of components with actual names + links that we can order? We want to order once and cry once this time. As this is our first to break into the field of RC drones, we would like to keep it as cheap as possible. That said, if there are some components like the Radio Controller (or the handheld remote controller) that can be used on other future drones, we could spend a lot more on that so we can ensure it's scaleable for future more advanced builds once we learn the basics off the first one.
Thank you in advance for teaching an old dog new tricks!
