Default Noob's budget FPV racing quadcopter build

Hey guys. I'm super excited..... I'm about to start my very first quadcopter build.... Yay!!!!

I've given my self a crash course in quadcopters, and I think I know everything I need to know, but I don't know what else I need to know. And it's hard to know with out knowing. So here I am sharing what I don't know in some hope I can help someone planning a budget build that doesn't know.

so what got me going was some videos from a race meet in Melbourne Australia.... It looks like a starwars pod race.... Since them I knew I had to get one.

Over the last year I've managed to sell lots of my surface vehicles and I going to use that money and some money from my saving to buil my self a budget FPV Quadcopter with the dream to some day race it.

stay tuned. Progress will be slow at first as I plan to get my orders out next week and then I've got to wait for postage

U are so brave, mate, I never thought of making it by myself. I bought my quadcopter from one website, which contained loads of models: http://flying-drones.expert/how-to-fly-a-quadcopter/
I was so exited when I bought such a beauty, however, now I feel like I missed smth. So good luck to u, engineer!
