The most expensive initial costs for you will be your transmitter (remote controller) and FPV glasses.
Don’t cheap out on either.
Your going to build a quad and realize, this is awesome I want to build another.
Your gonna want a transmitter that will save profiles - so to speak for each of your drones.
Pay the $250 or probably cheaper in the US and get a quality transmitter.
I spent $250 on mine and got what I considered to be mid-upper tier for my Frankenstein-quads.
It’s a 16 channel Taranis XD9+ by FrSky.
If you have access to a 3D printer, your golden!
If not, you might have to order parts through your local hobby shop.
The RC community is awesome, as Triton will probably attest, we love showing off our creations and sharing builds.
For FPV get quality.
I’m running Fatshark Dominator 2 - very dated by 2019 standards.
The aspect ratio was good at the time - but now, not so much. 4:3 does not cut it. The FoV is too tight I find, but I’m used to them.
My bud has the dom. 3 and it’s 16:9. So much better and clearer.
even if you go with something older like the dominator 3’s you’ll be happy.
