    And a lot cheaper to make your own than £499 and even more cheaper to repair WHEN you crash rather than IF you crash.

    Either way you won't regret getting into this hobby, its so much fun and so many possibilities. Let us know how you get on @RichB

    Nice bit of kit that @plexer, glad its all hooked up and reading right. When do you think your maiden flight will be? (time scale)

    I have hopefully managed to grab myself a bargin price brushless gimbal to tinker with which is my next enjoyment.... after just completing my first beer brew at home, 20 litres of larger brewed, had my first taste test on Friday and it was delicious! but the final date when its all ready is the 27th of this month so don't expect much communication from me after that until its all drank lol

    Electronics bay mounted with flight controller and also have the IMU added now.

    Few bits of neoprene to give a bit of isolation on the screws.

    FPV Quadcopter basic parts list (JABcopter)-20130919_183848-1-.jpg

    Running it with the IMU and using MultiWiiWinGui I get a rock steady 0 from the gyro's when it's sitting on the ground.

    Artificial horizon shows it climbs and dives and rolls as expected

    The batteries and charger will be coming from the UK hobbyking warehouse so that's 48 hour delivery. pay day is weds.

    The radio I am planning on getting though is going to take a while to arrive as the esc's took about a fortnight so going to be a couple of weeks yet.
