Another forum user Mike was very kind..... he donated an APM & Xbee to my build I really cannot say in words how this progressed my project.

Really still adding components.   Im at a loss with the power system and need to read more on how to make the esc, batteries, and apm, and survos all get power.

Here is a pic please don't let anyone else see my photos :)  im kind of paranoid if this makes any sense any this entire hobby is in a grey area of the FAA, I personally enjoy bending rules just hate proving it lol.
