@SinisterLefty I wanted a similar setup, so here’s what I ended up with. Only thing I want to call out is that the e011 board must be the old style, which is a gamble. That means the e011C (SantaWhoop) is the best option to ensure you can flash it, but like others said, you’ll want to get rid of the speaker!
That’ll get them up and running to see if they like it!
The transmitter was the first thing I decided to upgrade, so this is what I got:
This $17 ROTG01 5.8G Receiver is what I plan to order next, so I can use my phone, tablet, or PC as a DVR. Fingers crossed it works well.
I also need to upgrade my charger, but am still researching the best option for me. Make sure they learn how to use batteries safely!
I’m seriously loving this set up!! Hopefully the boy(s) are patient enough to deal with random technical issues that pop up. Even something as simple as hair getting caught up in the props will ground you, and stress out motors, I imagine.
Hope that helps!
