Here are four of the best budget beginner builds, each compiled by a major FPV product reviewer. Components common to multiple budget beginner FPV racing drone builds include the DYS Samguk Wei 2207 2600KV motors (2/4 builds) and the Eachine TX805 video transmitter (2/4 builds).
We also asked FPV builders and DRONE RACING INTERNATIONAL FPV to recommend a first FPV racing drone build – in response, we got a list of builds but also some essential advice. Use our clickable comparison table to further explore firsts builds or advice (below) and use our clickable multirotor diagram to explore individual parts (also below).
If you would like a mentor to guide you through speccing and building an FPV multirotor, Facebook group FPV builders contains a wealth of mentors including Jason Langhoff aka ‘DreadsFPV‘ (below) or ‘Quad-Jesus’. Jason is passionate about giving new pilots the knowledge to repair their multirotors, because the best way to accelerate the FPV learning process is ‘Break, fix, fly, repeat’, now a mantra for both Jason and other FPV builders.
