Starting new build UK
« on: July 02, 2019, 03:11:55 AM »
So I have never built a drone before but always wanted a DJI Mavic so far I have ordered the following parts but am stuck as to what motors, esc, battery's and controller to get any suggestions would be very welcome.

Flight controller - LITEBEE SP Racing F3
GPS - Ben-gi Super-Mini-Ublox 7
Reciever - FrySkY V8R4-II

Along with some 2x2 led, a power distro board and some clone rotor blades

I am planning on printing the majority of the parts in Petg with some of the smaller internal pieces in PLA. Should this be OK or should I look towards ABS?

I have also noticed some people have added a camera, how have you done this? Can you point me in the direction of equipment needed?

I printed all in PLA and it works as a charm! Watch out for the SP Racing F3 controller which is an old one. GPS nav for example is nog supported anymore on this board by many operating systems.
