Another option if you choose to use the dys escs. A combination of the flight controller with on screen display and PDB. Also makes for a pretty neat build
With Escs you got 2 different options. If you choose the 4in1 Esc you won't need a pdb anymore since the 4in1 esc has a bec (5V voltage regulator) to power your flight controller.
If you use the slim escs from dys you have to add a PDB to add a voltage regulator and to distribute the power to the escs. Nowadays I would recommend to take the 4in1 it makes a cleaner build, reduces costs and also ist the newer option in terms of performance and software compatibility.
As said if you use the 4 in 1 Esc you don't need the PDB.
There are many different flavours of vtxs out there here are some options in different price ranges. In my opinion they all work well.
This is also just an overview. These are products that I have personal experience with and which I can recommend. There are tons of other transmitter and receivers out there but these are in a reasonable price range. I am personally flying the Flysky TH9X with the Frsky XJT module and am very pleased with the overall performance.
Here are a few bits and bobs that you better don't miss out when buying stuff for your quad.
This is some foam padding to put unter your lipo. Maybe put it on your quad with double-sided-tape.
These are just two very different options for lipos. One is more or less the lower price end but still a very good lipo. The smc one is more of there top end in pricing. You can read through tons of lipo reviews and find what you like the most.
Stay in the ballpark of 1300-1500mah and don't choose a lipo that has less then 35C
If you buy stuff over my links it helps me out alot.
Thanks to everybody and happy flying.
