This Is Kitchen Table Engineering At It’s Finest

Hey, for the DIY-ers who are itching to build a drone and brag how much they didn’t spend after they won the race, this is for you.

Here’s a nice overview of a DIY build, for a FPV racing drone under 500 grams and without sacrificing performance.  Don’t forget the rear LED’s!

I have placed several orders, they have been delivered in 9 days for the most fastest one and in 22 days for the longest one.

Parts Summary

Other usefull accessories :

I would also strongly recommend that you get hold of a bluetooth unit as this one. You will then be able to use an application on your smartphone and connect yourself to the drone by means of the bluetooth to perform the configuration adjustements ( this being essential on the field).I use Multiwii EZ-GUI on my  Android smartphone.

Here is a basic schema to help you wire your quadcopter :
