What Else Do I Need?

New to R/C?  Here is a list of everything else you will need to get in the air.

ITEM ONE - Transmitter & Receiver

You need a minimum of 5 channel transmitter & receiver to control the craft.  Four channels are used for flight and the fifth is to set the flight mode. Option 1 is What I use:
Spektrum 6700 DX6 6 Channel System w/ AR610 Receiver 
DX6i 6CH DSMX Radio System with AR610 Receiver   Option 3 is a bit more costly for a non computer radio but includes an excellent flight simulator. - This is the transmitter and flight simulator. - This is the Receiver

ITEM TWO - Battery Pack

2200-5000mAh 3 cell LiPo battery.  I prefer the lighter packs even though the flight times are reduced the flight characteristics seem better the lighter you can keep the craft.  
Here is what I use:
Turnigy 2200mAh 3S 20C Lipo Pack HobbyKing RC Battery 

ITEM THREE -Charger/Power Supply/Connectors

780mm Prototype Quad

This is designed with taller legs and longer 13" arms to allow for a GoPro or similar to be mounted underneath.  The longer arms reduce the maneuverability but greatly enhance the stability.  So far this is proving to be a great quad for getting the hovering steady shot.
