    Hi All

    I'm getting ready to buy a F450 setup from a shop in Thailand (which is where i live) Due to language differences it's hard to ask questions. For the moment it isn't having a gimbal, camera or FPV, however I will add that a bit later. This is the list of items from the hobby store, but I'm sure it's missing little things. Connectors? some thing to install the GPS on? or any thing else?

    Futaba T14SG (my choice so I don't have to upgrade ever again)

    I already own a charger - The shop says it's ok but might be a bit slow.

    I don't want to buy the parts and then wait another week to get the missing connectors I need, so I'd love it if you guys help me out.

    Thanks all

    :) :)

    That charger is the same one that comes with the Phantom 1...it'll work for this but it will be sloooow to charge that batt, like well over two hours, maybe even three. I'd suggest getting a charger that will output at least 6A, search Imax B6AC and Turnigy Accucel 6 for popular affordable options.

    You'll need at least a connector for the batt to plug in to the lead from the 450's board. The 450 kit will come with a Deans plug on that lead, so you can get the matching one for the batt, or use XT60 for both.

    might wanna look into DJI landing legs.

    But I def agree,. look into a better charger.

    and determine what kind of battery you'll be using.
    you might want to get a male/female XT60 connectors (or a few sets of them)
