    Hey guys- Got my QAV-R 220 complete and did a test hover but its raining so I thought I'd start my cheap ZMR 250 style build.

    Here is what I'm working with:

    http://www.amazon.com/Makerfire®-Carbon-Fiber-Quadcopter-Frame/dp/B00PH461E8?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00

    This FCB: http://www.amazon.com/LHI-Controlle...&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00

    I'm trying it with this power distribution board:
    http://www.amazon.com/Crazepony®-NAZE32-Distribution-QAV250-Quadcopter/dp/B013BAYIP8?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00

    After I ordered it, I think I figured out that this board doesn't have 5vt to power the FCB so I bought this: http://www.amazon.com/Servo-Helicop...&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00

    Rotors and ESCs I got on sale at hobby king when they were $49.

    and I bought 3 4S batteries for $50 during the sale.

    As I look this over, I have a few questions concerning the battery output. As I'm new to this style build, I'm wondering if you guys could give some advice. If I have 14.8 vt battery, what do I do about a 12 vt camera and 12 volt VTX? Also I'm wondering if the above set up will have any issues that I'm not aware of being a newb. Any advise, input and of course opinions are welcome.

    Thanks.

    You shouldn't have a problem, I'm sure the PDB will have 5V and 12V BEC outputs.

    Quote Altsickeness from another recent thread: "Nice find! I bought a few of those batteries. The motors and escs look good too but i got to stop spending money for awhile. I almost bought a quantum falcon frame for $16 but stopped myself. Ha ha!"

    You SUCK at -not- spending money! ;)

    Ha ha! It was too good of a deal! I took the heat from the wife and it was worth it. What's a quad addict to do?
