I checked some unblocking videos on YouTube for kingkong q100. Does it come w a controller? All the vids, only has the drone part and no controller.  Do I have to pay extra for the controller?

Thanks

Yes if you wanted to own a King Kong Q100 you'll need to supply your own controller because its a "Builder package" build for experience (Pro) user/pilot who prefer customized building and optional add-on. You can check out details here, i did blog about King Kong Q100 few months back: https://www.supermotoxl.com/designs-a-creat...pv-racing-drone

Hope the info helps.

Oh! speaking about King Kong Q100 today i manage to add 3rd Q100 to my collection but i installed different flight controller and FPV camera unit. Custom build enhanced lighweight weight and have rear programmable brake lights. Enjoying lots of R/C activity today and that was 4th last task of R/C work before dinner. biggrin.gif

Depends which path you wanted to go, you have three choices:

1. If budget just wanted to play around and not much into hobby then:
Radio Model: FLYSKY FS-i6X
Budget: RM$250/-~300/-

2. If got cash, wanted to join the crowds, grow with hobby and being competitive in R/C community:
Radio Model: FrSky TARANIS
Budget: RM$1200/-~1500/-

3. If budget but have extra brains, good with engineering mods and pushing boundary of R/C with DIY's:
Radio Model: TURNIGY 9XR Pro + FrSky module
Budget: RM$350/-~450/-

Hey bro, sup smile.gif
How big the quad/hex? FPV or autonomous aerial mapping? If small under 450 size RM$600+ oke but with that price can buy a good out of box multirotor with perfect stability, GPS, longer battery runtime and other stuff... save time and money to build one. Technology changed fast and affordable.

I got some item now. but now flight time suck not sure motor overrun or lipo..but big posibility lipo suck.

Now I got multiple frame at hand using or brand.
like:
TBS Clone
SK450 Deadcat (some parts missing due to random crash)
SK450 Deadcat HK version, with voltage regulator module? (not sure the name, i get it less then 5 dollar event)
Super H600

Motor using 4 Sunnysky X2212 980kv, 8 XXD 1000kv cheapo motor
ESC using multistar 30A BLheli esc, and extra 4 cheapo 30a esc.


lipo now using multistar 3s 5200 10c...yep 10C...

Maybe budget build only can go quad...hex will significant increase cost.

now so far only aim for 500+meter simple actioncam record

didnt we discussed some time ago that 10c is a no go? discharge is way too low for 400+ size.

even in theory it wont work. just using the avaiable numbers:

30A esc x 4 = 120A ESC max draw
5.2Ah * 10c = 52A batt max discharge

batt will bloat in no time.

Woah! your combo unit is heavy especially that SK450 dead cat frame. I used to help my friend build a dead cat similar like your but with NTM brand motor almost same KV rating with 3s 5200 10C multistar lipo battery, it ran approximately between 10~13 minutes with total flying weight of 1.3kg. Yeah your battery going to be hot and bloated soon as calculated by zeroglyph. My previous similar build but on Dji classic flame wheel 450 type quad with total flying weight about 830g with 4x 850kv +30A esc give me 12minutes on 3s 2200mah 35/40C TURNIGY lipo battery. Here's my old build log: https://www.supermotoxl.com/fpvuav-models-b...ultirotor-450mm for comparison.

Why not build something out of the box, not conventional way but through DIY improvements for example using handmade DIY foamy quad frame for lightweight solution or use different type battery to fly your quad. Btw i manage to fly a small plane for 90 minutes using a small Li-on torchlight battery as shown previously and also flew for 35 minutes on toy hexacopter on the same battery to get extra fligthtime for kids to learn how to fly instead swapping battery every 10 minutes. (yeah that brushed motor get hot for flying too long). Right now working to add GPS solution and long range radio to make the toy hexa worthy. Btw my budget is RM300 for all this mods.

because I cant even done the solder in good condition.

20mins of flight time is a little tricky. 20mins requires a fairly large battery. large battery = large quad. off the top of my head, i could only think of phantoms or something similar.

Hey im interested to get started in quadcopters. Do u guys know where to buy parts here in Malaysia if I want to build my own drone? The guides Ive read are mostly based in the States or other parts of the world.
