Budget Basher Build - PART 1.5 - Parts Discussion [COMPLETE BUILD GUIDE 5" FPV BEGINNER DRONE]
I'll tell you right away: this video is not critical to actually building your Budget Basher 5" FPV Quadcopter Racing/Freestyle Drone. Rather, this video is for those builders that are more interested in the parts and theory behind the build. I'll give a mini-review on all the parts and tell you WHY I chose each part.
If you just want to get on to the building, feel free to skip this video. :)
Here are the parts you'll need (I've listed several places to buy the part or it's equivalent):
FLIGHT CONTROLLER / 4-in-1 ESC COMBO STACK:
Diatone Mamba F405
MOTORS (buy 4):
Banggood: DYS Samguk Wu 2206 2400kv
Foxeer Arrow Mini Pro
(Be sure the VTX and VTX antenna connectors match male/female, AND that your VTX antenna is LHCP or RHCP to match your FPV GOGGLES antenna)
Hecate 230 5"
RaceDayQuads: Rotor Riot CL1 (costs more than the Hecate, but better designed) https://www.racedayquads.com/collections/5-frames/products/rotor-riot-cl1-frame
Also https://amzn.to/2Qudg2l would be a great choice
Heatshrink tubing or electrical tape
Soldering iron (fine conical tip)
Solder (60/40 rosin core)
Hex drivers or allen keys
Multimeter (for checking electrical connections)
Wire strippers (nice to have)
