    Hi all. i am currently in the process of choosing my parts for my drone that i am hoping to make myself. I would like the following features:
    GPS missions that i can program using my laptop or phone (i dont mind either way!).
    Return to home/auto stability.
    A camera feed on a monitor with signal percentage and other statistics, such as altitude and speed, and maybe distance from where it started.
    My budget is £600, and i have chosen my frame already. It is the s500 frame from unmanned tech store. Can somebody make a parts list with my required specs please? I can invest an extra £50 maximum

    Your threads reminds me of the HomeAdviser ads. "Get me references, set up interviews,...". If you don't have time to do some research how will you ever find the time to buy and assemble the parts? When will you fly it once you get it done?

    Dude, you're not getting the message. We're not here to do your work for you. You need to do the research yourself, you'll need the knowledge to go anywhere in this very complex hobby. Do the research, make a parts list of what you've decided on and post your list. We'll be more than happy to give you advice on what will work and what you'll need to change. We'll also be here when you start your build and run into problems. Which you will. If that's not good enough for you then sorry

    There is no mean ppl on this site.
    Just a bunch of ol farts with a dry sense of humour. o_O
    If you want a photography or media platform then IMO a 400mm frame.
    Bigger = more stable.
    2212motors 950kv- 1200kv
    I would opt for the inav fcb & GPS.
    8"-10' props, preferably carbon.
    30Amp blheli esc's.
    Most components are compatible these days. So have a look around.

    Ok thanks. Any specific lists u could compile with my specific requirements? This frame i specifically want for a hybrid drone (basic photography and flying for fun too)

    Why not just buy a DJI like everybody else?

    Hmm ok... only because I already have a list to go off for myself.. I planned on putting a Pixhawk FC on a Tarot Ironman frame in the future. Pixhawk Flightcontroller with MissionPlanner may be a little better than iNav.

    x1 Pixhawk Flight Controller

    x1GPS Module

    x4 Emax 905kv Brushless motors

    x4 Hobbywing Skywalker 50A ESC

    x1 FrSky Taranis X9D w/ X8R Receiver

    x1 5000 mah Lipo Battery

    The above items will get your quad flying... as far as the gimbal... goodluck getting your desired results with wifi FPV... but heres a few options that work well w/ GoPro.. and GoPro can provide live video to your phone.

    Option 1
    Option 2
    Option 3

    I would recommend trying to throw a FPV setup on it, as well though, if you want better FPV results.

    x1 Runcam Eagle Camera

    x1 Matek VTX

    You will have a difficult time finding everything you need within your price range from UK stores.. sorry. But Banggood has good customer service from my experience. Just takes 2-3 weeks to arrive. You can always check your UK stores, and use this list as a guide.

    So while you wait on the parts to come, you can research how to assemble them.

    How does the gimbal work? Does it work with my radio?

    Yes, you can control tilt, pan and roll from your radio. But note that you will need a radio such as the Taranis X9D Plus that has LOTS of channels, sliders and pots.

    I have a question myself... is telemetry needed for control of the gimbal? I haven't looked into that aspect very much yet.. I have seen people adding control to different switches. #ThreadTakeOver

    There's really no "control" of GPS, it's just a function of the flight controller. You can however select different flight modes such as GPS, Attitude, Manual etc depending on what flight controller you are using
