    Thanks for posting the parts list. Do you think an Airtronics RDS8000 tx will work with its 8ch rx? Or is the Spektrum required?

      Just want to add a few things..
      First, I think the radio I mentioned will work, and most r/c radios will work just fine in PPM or PPW modes. Some advanced radios require SBUS to reduce the number of wires. I bought a Taranis radios which is popular for drones. If anyone want so buy my RDS 8000 & 8ch receiver, I'll sell them for $120.

      You may also need a power supply for the battery charger. Here's one on amazon:

    Just so everyone knows, there are two items on teh Amazon list which have limited quantities. If you do plan to come to this classroom event and are wanting to build your quadcopter, you should order your parts quickly.

    What I see right now is that there are only qty. 4 of the Transmitters and receivers available in stock and only 3 of the Flight controllers available. Everything else appears to have safe quantities. This can change but if you really want to buy in, do it today before they are all gone.

      What Mike said! Do we have any alternative vendors/sources for this item?

    • David B.

    Reposting Mike's reply, in the hopes of more visibility:

    The Simonk 30A FIRMWARE Brushless ESC Set with 3A/5V BEC for DJI450 RC Quadcopter Multi-copter APM2(4 PCS) is already out of stock. Is there an alternative?

    Would it be possible to attend, but not build? The $430.84 is a bit too much at this time, but I am very interested.

      Of course! Spending money is totally optional.

  • David B.

  • Conrad

    Love that we're having it, but I think I'll only be observing this time. This will be great!
