I'm guessing that it is possible, but very difficult. I doubt if you could built one as small or as cheaply as the ones they sell.

It depends on what you want to do. Most of us here want to fly or drive our stuff. So we just go out and buy the electronics. Other people enjoy the challenge of electronics and don't care if they ever get to fly it. You have to choose.

It is possible, but why would you want to? You can buy a micro receiver for next to nothing that works and is reliable. You can spend maybe 2 to 10 times that to try to make one from scratch that you don't know if it will be reliable if you do get it to work.

Some companies had kits for you to make your own radios from their kits. They are gone now.

If you are trying to save a buck, that isn't the way to do it. If you are doing it for the fun of electronics, it might be fun.

With receivers you'll end up spending more money on the components to make it than you would to buy a whole pre-built set.
