    An invitation to multirotor discourse!

    With so many choices to choose from, I was wondering what you guys look for personally when buying a multirotor. Do you prefer a kit or a ready-to-fly? Or just the frame or maybe a PNF? Perhaps you prefer to scratch build? Does it have to look good aesthetically? Or do you utilitarians not...

For example, if I already have an esc and servos and all I need is a motor, I would like the option of being able...
