First build - unsure about parts


Junior Member
I have finally obtained all of the tools and parts I think I need to build my first FPV quadcopter, but now I'm unsure if I picked the right motors/ESC's/batteries to get it flying. I would greatly appreciate any feedback on parts that won't work.

Initial build:
- H250 ZMR250 250 carbon fiber frame
- Crazypony 12A Brushless ESC BLHELI 4pcs
- Cobra CM2204-28 2300 Kv brushless motors
- Gemfan 5046 5045 Bull Nose props
- RealAcc Matek Mini Power Distribution Board
- Naze32 Acro v6
- FrSky D4R-II Receiver (intent to use 8 channel via RSSI)
- RunCamp Swift 600 TVL 2.8mm 5-17V 2s-4s IR blocked camera
- Immersion RC 600mw 5.8 GHz A/V Transmitter
- Fatshark Attitude v3 goggles
- Tattu 1800mAh 45C 3S1P LiPo battery and Tattu 1300mAh 75C 4S1P LiPo battery
- FrSky Taranis X9D Plus radio

I'd like to make sure the video signal is clean, but can't tell if the power distribution board has the necessary filter. I thought I would go without and OSD board to keep it simple, but now I'm wondering if that would be more simple.

I can't wait to get flying. Thanks for the help!

If you are getting a Naze REV6 why not use an Xr4-SB receiver and use SBUS. The D4R-II will only do CPPM. You might consider the XSR although I have heard there can be range problems with that.

If you are not buying from FliteTest I suggest you buy the Taranis from here...
if you are in the US

Might want to consider DAL "unbreakable" props since they are much less breakable than Gemfans
