Please don’t eat me alive I’m new to racing drones!! An I’m currently practising LOS with a little hubsan X4 storm and I’m bloody enjoying it. So have decided to step out of the frying pan and into the fire!!!
I was going to buy a RTF quad and get on with it, how ever after watching loads of vids on youtube and reading information on here I feel like I will easily be able to build my own quad from scratch. However the one thing that is stopping me from putting a list together and buying all the parts I need is I’m worried sick about the Pids after I have built my dream machine.
My question is if I build a new quad from scratch and flash the flight controller with the latest version of beta flight do I have to then start from scratch and 're configure the pids to even get it to fly, take off the floor? Or will it fly on the default Pids that have just be loaded on the all singing all dancing fresh copy of beta flight. My understanding of Pids is it’s like getting a new car and sort of remapping the ECU to make it perform faster gain more horse power if you will. But before you touched the ECU the car operated perctly fine and you don’t have to update the ECU to have it running fine.
Last question what flight controller would you guys recommend for a newbie for his very first build?
Thanks and any help understanding the above would be appreciated
