eBay multirotors kits

Hello everyone, I was looking into mini quads and this pop into the screen and I wonder if they are good. Can with this configuration I carry a gopro or bigger batteries? And those kits are fine or is better go to Hobbyking and get everything separately?

If I "HAD" to get one of those, I'd go with the larger (with the KK board). I only say that because the KK board is well known, probably easy to find settings for the size frame that is included.

That being said. The NAZE 32 will flight right out of the box, I've never had that same luck with the KK board. The other "no name" board on the smaller one, I think you would be really annoyed trying to figure that one out, especially if you are just starting. I started with a DJI Naza -M v2 and a F550 kit and even with a plug and play system like that, it was a lot of work.

I highly recommend you get a full-up system that can fly right out of the box. The less you spend, the more it will cost you in the long run. AFTER you know how to fly/hover these, then you can go cheap. But, you will need the training wheels before you can go without them (GPS/aided flight).

The smaller one, calls itself a QAV250 in the title, but doesn't reference it being an actual QAV product later on. I believe its just another knock off.

In the long run, the more you initially spend the more success you will have and the better success you will have.

Best of luck.

Jao, If this is your first quad, I think the general consensus varies from person to person.

I was bought a kit quad and in hindsight I think I'd have bought some majorly different equipement had I been given the choice. While it provided a good step in to the hobby (which I'm still very new at admittedly) it also means that you have a substantial lack of knowledge.

I personally would strongly advise against going for a GPS aided system for your starter. If you get the KK you can set it up in Acro and learn the controls / intracies of flying a quad and how twitchy they can be, and then when you're more established you can use Self-Level and have that easy flight with a camera gimble / fpv set up with the knowledge you can fly it without if there's any problems.

My personal recommendation, learn the components, start cheap (kk2.1.5, 250mm Quad frame etc), nothing fancy and then when you know your stuff and know how to fly unaided, move to the more expensive set ups, that way you're less likely to crash and sink a go-pro into the floor / a stream / etc.

Thank you for the insights! I already have a lot of experience flying, almost a year now. I don't have problems with the mounting soldering.... My only concern is about the quality of the motors, the flight controller will be kk2. :)

We have been discussing a couple kits lately (there are many):

http://multirotormania.com/multirotor-packages/282-100-carbon-fiber-mini-quad-bundle-wsunnysky.html

This one needs a few loose ends and they are mentioned n the thread I posted earlier.

And this one that is more complete but currently not orderable:

http://shop.multirotorminis.com/EMAX-250-Pro-Mini-Quad-Bundle-E250ProMiniQuadBundle.htm

The first bundle, which is available, has a lot of very nice parts.
