Hi, i'm new here I have been in love with drones since I saw them. And now I decided to make one, (I've never flew or touched or even seen one in real life) I'm only 16 but I read a lots of books about embedded programming and etc and the main interesting part for me is making it smart, balance itself and you know! I have experience with ARM-M and A with Linux and Arduino and AVR. I just wanted to get an Ar.drone(i know everything is already done but still fun and it has sdk and a front camera :| but also a short range!) but first I want to see if I can make one with my limited resources so here are my choices: I found a kit which has these parts (Its not English but the model numbers are English, I guess you can also use google translate): A frame which has no details 4x Angel A2212 - 980KV 4x 30A speed controllers (no mention of model or anything) 8 propellers 1 voltage divider! It says you need a flight controller and a battery and a transmitter to make it work so here are my choices for them (they are like 15 at most! not a long list) Batteries are here Radio controllers are here here are Flight controllers for price in dollars divide the numbers by 3200! can i make a good drone with these parts? which flight controller is good for me since i want to make smart and self balance etc? do i need a Radio controller ? I think I'm mostly going to debug it and etc(not real flight far from the drone!!) so a Bluetooth would be enough, or something like that, can i do that? I don't have much money and each saved dollar could help me! so i rather make a cheaper one!(but i need too see the price at end first, to decide if I can pay that much! if I can build a nice drone with around 300-450$ I will pay! also can I somehow stream video from them like ar.drone does? and how much battery life will i get for average!? thanks sorry for the long thread!
