New to this hobby currently learning to fly my first drone JJRC H33. A very low tech toy drone but I am finding it forgiving and easy to control in the garden. Having watched a number of YouTube videos a $99 build even having converted to £ seemed like just the thing to keep me occupied while I learnt to fly. Having followed the why walk when you can stumble, buying parts was inevitably the next step. I realise some of the parts in the $99 build spec are now considered vintage. My theory was one, older parts keeps the price down and if I fry the build I can potentially get back on track. I will post my parts list and costs so far, tomorrow. Safe to say a $99 dollar build it's not. That said UAV Futures is a great YouTube channel, providing you don't mind hyper Steve.
