    I have wanted to build a UAV/Quadcopter for a couple years now, and after seeing new 250 Class FPV tournaments have started in my area, I think I have found my reason to get started. I would like to build/purchase my first race rig, but I have never flown before. From what I understand, starting out of the box with a race rig will be pretty rough. Do I need to plan on a few months in something simpler to pilot before purchasing race ready hardware?

    So far, I think I am open to any models that would fit in the 250 Class regulations. I am wondering if it would be best to build my race ready rig with different ECS/FC/Motors to start out with, then upgrade when I am competent enough to handle more sensitive hardware?

    I am hoping to find others out there that have flown similar rigs, to let me know just what I am up against. Thanks!
