    As far as motors go, would it be better to go with 2205 or 2207 ****kv motors? What would be the difference while flying?

    Actually, after looking a little more, maybe these motors will be better? 2203 2600kv.

    I'm really trying to figure out how the stator height affects performance. From what I can understand, it gives more torque. Is this true?

    Ok.

    Here's my list so far:
    Frame: Amazon - Crazepony Martian RX255 - $29.99
    Flight Controller Stack: Banggood - Eachine Stack-X F4 Flytower w/FPV camera - $105.99
    Motors: Amazon - DYS 2206 2600KV, set/4 - $75.99
    Props: Amazon - Gemfan 6040 3-blade, pk/16 - $16.99
    Batteries: Banggood - Infinity 4S 1500mAh 70C - $20.99 - 2 pcs.
    FPV goggles: Banggood - Aomway Commander - $310

    Grand total: $580.94

    I think that's pretty good for a decked out 250 quad with goggles.

    If anyone has better suggestions to these items please reply.

    It occurred to me that I need a Rx for the stack. Can someone recommend a good one?

    Yes, you can connect a spaktrum Sat up to one of the UART's, just remember to run power to a 3.3 pad on the board, and not 5v.

    I found this satellite Rx on amazon. I think it looks like a decent one. The reviews are pretty positive too.

    I went ahead and started the process. I ordered my frame (Crazepony Martian II RX255) and will get a little at a time until next year and then I'll ramp it up with a few large orders. I got a pretty good shopping list right now. Besides the quad, I want to get the new Spektrum iX-12, a few lemon Rx's and esc's...etc. I'm gonna gather a bunch of stuff to go on these planes I have built. I'll also get a few items to get this fancy Speedix 210 rippin' and roarin' (thanks Ivan!). Also on the list is a new pair of Aomway goggles.

    Go all out or get out!!!!!! LMAO!!!!

    Yes, on any bolt that goes into metal and is made out of metal. Especially the motors. Just don't over tighten them.
