    Pre-buying advice

    Yes, it has an OSD, I turn virtually all but the battery voltage and a couple other things off, I also have a Bfight 210 but I like the x215 better. I'm also building one little by little, but the price of the build is already topping $350. Unfortunately I lost an x215, ordered a replacement...

    Pre-buying advice

    I have an I6, played with it for a bit before it heads to it's intended owner. The I6 is basic, but with the interface of the taranis and setup options and relative ease once you learn the basics, the taranis is miles beyond the I6 IMO. My original budget for a transmitter was in the I6...

    Pre-buying advice

    I'd say spend a bit more on the transmitter. Personally I have a Taranis Plus but I'm considering getting a Q X7 as a spare lower profile radio.

    First build eventually

    What size banana plugs would you recommend then? These are small connectors, anything smaller I would think would be too small for the diameter of the motor wires.

    Hello I am new here

    Grand Canyon has helicopter tours, I was there for a few days on 2 different road trips about 2 weeks apart (upwards of 7000 miles of driving). Not a place I'd want to fly a drone as there would be a good chance of never seeing it again.

    First build eventually

    Got some connectors in the mail and got them soldered up, I hope to make the motors and other items simply plug and play. With the 40a esc and whatnot, I would imagine I could swap between motors from basic learning to some with good power. Also going to see if making the camera and VTX plug...
