I had a few challenges in the selection. The first issue is that there is so much junk equipment that under performs the specifications. I wanted to use something fairly easy to find  and cost effective. There are lots of clones for the DJI F550 Flame Wheel, but many of the options were china direct and could not promise to arrive soon. There were clone kits avail for around 250 dollars, but checking further I found a couple of genuine DJI F550 Flame Wheel ARF ( almost ready to fly) kits that included the ESC motor controllers , the motors and the props as well. The price was.... $200 .... SOLD!  Well that was fun, I asked the seller to send pictures of the contents in all their glory :p

Now we wait for it to get here.
