Hi, looking to start building my own drone...
This may sound cool but i have been reading a lot of stuff.. 


anyone here into this?


What software do you use?
4,6 or 8 rotor is better?


Any good forums that may be worth checking out?
I'm keen to get trusted information (i.e. geek zone is 110% trusted).

In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.

I learnt allot starting out by watching Bruce. Helped get my head around the basics but that's just about it.


The multi-rotor rabbit hole is vast.




Lets start by asking what it is you want to do with your "Drone"?
