Hello all,

I'm new to the site and to the rc world. I've always wanted to get into it so I went out and bought a Parrot A.R. Drone 2.0, big mistake. For the price of it I was extremely disappointed. I had it 3 weeks when one of the motors burned out. It flew good until I had to do an update, after that it wouldn't stay level while hovering. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone to buy.

So now I'm hooked and I've decided to build a tricopter. As I said I'm new to this so I have a parts list of what I think would work. I was hoping someone could give me their input to see if I am on the right track or even close.
