    Electrohub Quad with Naza-M Lite?

    RTF or Build

    For my second quad, what will be cheaper? To buy ready to fly quads or to build one. I've never build one before. Also links to specific quads would be great. I would really like to to be able to hold a camera to take pictures and video. Thanks

    EMAX Nighthawk Pro 280 ARF
