I'm really new to this hobby. Not new enough to not know what each of the parts does, but new enough to not know how one part affects the other. So choosing parts seemed like such a daunting task. Do I pick a frame first, or a PDB, or FC, or motors?

After looking at a few frames choices I settled on the Japalura due to the Armattan warranty on the frame and also from many good reviews online. Seeing the parts options on the website also made me hopeful that the parts were going to work together.

The total build price was less costly than shown in the Parts list below, probably due to single source purchasing through Armattan directly. The only equipment I had coming into this build was the Pagoda antenna, which I'm currently using only one of the pair for my goggles.

They were out of stock for the props at the time of ordering, so I'll need to pick up some from a local hobby store. As well as trying to find some lightweight powerful batteries.

This will be my first build and I've found a good build log to follow along with.

Wish me luck.

Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
