Just a slight concern on your eBay kit mate,Firstly I suspect it is from China? Thought we were aiming for uk suppliers?I appreciate we are not looking for top endThe motors are cheap clones of emax rx2205 2300, I have issues with the originals, a cheap clone isn't gonna improve that, I think I would suggest spending a little more, there are motors which are not top end but are very reasonably priced available in the uk such as hellfireFinally the flight controllers again a cheap clone, not genuine, the sprf3 uses an mpu6500 gyro, not a 6050 (in fact it may even be the 9250)The problem with cheap clone fc, quite apart from the fact you are not supporting the creator of cleanflight and have no real recourse if there are software issues, is they tend to use cheap components that break pretty quickly, the problem with the sprf3, aside from the gyro (the clone one is actually a better gyro for a quad) is those just-sh connectors which may seem a great idea if you are not confident soldering but actually are a common fail point, again there are cheap genuine uk supplied boards such as the skyline series,
Stick to cf board for a beginner. (Openpilot hasn't supported cc3d for over a year)Rotorgeeks have just released the perfect fc for this at a very good price but they are Canadian, don't know if they will have uk supplierSomething like this:http://www.hobbyrc.co.uk/emax-skyline-f3-acro-flight-controllerAnd here:http://makeitbuildit.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=87_31&product_id=897Are cheap and will work well although still using jst-shMotors:Dys would be pretty cheap and decent:http://www.hobbyrc.co.uk/dys-se2205-pro-2300kv-racing-edition-3-5s-brushless-motor the hellfire ones are here (out of stock):http://www.radioc.co.uk/Hellfire-2204-2300KV-Motor-p/2122.htmBut suggest if you are looking for economy and not too worried about speed:https://www.dronebit.co.uk/motors/2205?product_id=385Most of the build stuff is translatable from one component to another
I would suggest you start like most,motors mounting,esc,working your way tonthe pdb,connecting up the motors to esc,esc to pdb,check everything 3 times Then move onto the fc and connect to the pdb,then add and bind rx,you can bind the rx now if you have the tx/rx combo.Then maiden it los but dont go like clappers,learn to get it in air as it takes a punch to take off.be sure to add an led bar/strip.add fpv gear when ready.A lost alarm/buzzer and battery metre/alarm are handy but i use loc8tor and now i removed all the osd stuff i used for low voltage alarm so realy i just guess how long i fly
:) Perhaps lay it out?Test the fc!And let me tell you right now, you are gonna get very fed up with screwing those panels on and offI did forget, there were not enough bolts for all the panels in the robocat kit I built for my son, I had to use a couple of nylon standoff boltsWorth dry building the frame to figure out where it will all fit
Can't honestly answer with absolute certainty mate, all my motors come with wires, that sounds like the awg raining but bear in mind that is constant, you are not providing constant current at those levels for any length of time. Suggest you phone mike again
