    450 build

    Hey guys new to quadcopter. Building a 450 flame wheel.
    Battery size?
    Is 900kv sufficient?
    20a or 30a ESCs?

    Welcome to the Lab, there a many examples of 450 builds out there... what are your goals? FPV, HD video recording? I ask because this will help give you a good recommendation on what setup will suit you best. 900kV with a 4s battery in the 3000-4000mAh range will be OK for a light setup. If you are going to bog it down with FPV, OSD, HD camera, upgraded landing gear, a gimbal... then you will want something with a little more grunt.

    When nothing else out there will suit your needs... design and build it yourself.
