Love Quads, Novice pilot...

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I want to build a UAV quad / hex around arducotpter capabilites, so good payload, high reliability, low vibration and best possible efficiency / flight time.

"Your list looks fine to me but you will need to match your prop to the motor and lipo. Turnigy motors have big quality control issues and you could easily end up with a crash due to a motor failure. Look at these Sunnysky motors, a few dollars more…"
