Newbie from Bristol, south west UK
« on: January 02, 2017, 18:56:30 »
Hi All,
Looking to come back into R/C , Used to "muck about" with R/C cars and hovercraft.

Looking to get into fpv drone flying and maybe camera work for fun footage as opposed to business.

I will probably buy RTF but in reality want to get into building my own.

My problem is not necessarily what to buy, although advice is always welcome, but more of where to buy from.

Had a look at Bang good but they don';t seem to have good reviews as fas as I can see.

Are there any UK members out there that can give me advice on where the best places to look to buy from please?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, there are a few of us a bit further north near Stroud, (6 or so turned up to minichinhampton common today)

I would highly recommend the following sites, not just for. What they stick but the guys running them know what they are doing, you can phone them up, they will talk through what you are after and offer helpful advice that is not necessarily gonna cost you more money:

Hobbyrc
Electricwingman
Makeitbuildit
T9hobbysport (for frsky)

To a degree I have had less contact with but can';t fault:
Buildyourowndrone
Dronebitz

Others I have used but only occasionally, can';t comment on support levels or commercial interests:
I-drone
Droneshack
Supremefpv
Radioc

Shopping from banggood, gearbest etc is alright if you know what you are looking for, don';t mind long delays and are not too fused if there is a problem, I happily buy stuff for under a tenner from them frequently

Multirotorspares
GWR fasteners
Carbolts

Are all blindingly good for ancillary bits

Real raft of good and bad stuff in the states, best of the bunch for my money are rotorgeeks (Canadian really)
