    Newbie quadcopter kit without Tx and Rx.

    I've just purchased the Flysky FS-i6 Tx/Rx combo and want a quadcopter kit to use with it, but WITHOUT Tx and Rx. Can anyone recommend a good, not too expensive ($30 - $80) kit that has everything - frame, motors, props, perhaps battery, NO FPV and NO Tx/Rx?
