    Ordered my remote (Turnigy 9RX Pro) and flight controller (CC3D with case). The remote should hold me over for a long while, now to decide on tthe transmitter and receiver. The controller may not be exactly what I'm looking for, but it comes close, and gets me flying for 12$.

    It all starts here. The body is printed (along with a complete spare body with stronger arms). The M3 screws have been a pain to find locally. Had to resort to Ace Hardware. I will say the employee who worked with me to find the screws in their racks did a hell of a job helping look in all the little bins they had. Customer service like that does not come cheap though, but I do like having a place I can walk to for random screws nut and bolts for any project that might need them in the future. The FPV camera is from a buddy of mine, not sure on brand but it comes with a receiver and LCD screen so its a full system to start with. I have my remote picked out a Turnigy 9xr Pro. Have yet to decide on ESC, Motors or Flight Controller.
