#1

Hello,

I am a beginner trying to buy my first quadcopter.

Here is the kit I bought so far:
1 x F450 frame kit
4 x F450/F550 Landing gear
2 x Hobbypower 2212 920KV Brushless motor CW
2 x Hobbypower 2212 920KV Brushless motor CCW
4 x HP Simonk 30A Speed Controller
1 x APM2.8 Flight controller
1 x NEO-7M GPS
1 x APM Power Module
1 x Gemfan 1045(CW+CCW) Black Propeller
1 x Gemfan 1045(CW+CCW) Orange Propeller
1 x GPS Bracket

I still need a battery and a charger, but don’t have enough experience to pick.
Please help!

Start off with a couple of 3S 2200mAh LiPos. As a rough guess you should get a good 5 to 7 minutes out of each one.

Instead of the 7M, get an M8N GPS.

There are tons of battery chargers to choose from. I use a Turnigy Accucell-6 80W with an external power supply.

I use Multistar 5200 3s on my 450mm quad…great batteries for the money…around $28.00 over here in US…should give you very close to 15 minutes with no camera or gimbal…with camera and gimbal closer to 10 minutes
