A few weeks ago I made Public my latest project The Explorer 4, Since then I have had many emails asking how to build it even cheaper. How to save money on the Electronics?
Many people who are just starting out dont need a Taranis radio or FPV gear with gimball, they just want to learn to fly. I have Put together a Different parts list to be used with my frame that will get the quad flying for about 450usd including Transmitter/reciever and charger.
Due to the fact that the quad is designed to be a DIY project you can start with this basic setup and slowly add the Different motors, FPV gear and gimball as you wish.
Here is the link to the Parts list I have made: http://explorer4-quadcopter.com/?page_id=230
Let me know what you think.
