So far, I have these parts as all I need for a drone build. Is there anything else that I need or should have?

Is this everything I need to fully complete this build?


1 Answer 1


This has all of the items needed to build a drone.

  1. Flight Controller
  2. Remote Control and Receiver
  3. Frame
  4. Motors - 4
  5. Electronic Speed Controllers - 4
  6. Propellers - 2 CW, 2 CCW

Assemble it and you will need a battery to fly it. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

    $\begingroup$ It might be worth mentioning that this frame has a power distribution board built in, and these ESCs have a 5v BEC built in, while many other frames will need a separate PDB with 5v supply. Also there are little things like a battery plug for the drone, heat shrink tube, velcro and a velcro strap for the battery. And spare props! (and a battery charger?) Does that FC support a lost-model buzzer? $\endgroup$ Oct 8, 2021 at 7:50
  • $\begingroup$ I'm not too familiar with building drones, as this is my first one. I would assume a DJI model flight controller would support that, and if it doesn't I could just wire my one extra RC channel (Naza-M takes 5 inputs, but my RX has 6 channel outputs) to a buzzer instead. I do want to put a camera on it, so what type of camera should I use? $\endgroup$
