Stage 1 - Beginning the drone

I have started to build my drone and wanted to share it with you.

Looking at the Official Build Diary and the superb YouTube videos, togrther with the supplied instruction, there is sufficient advice on 'how to' build.

So my diary will be brief and usually contain 2 photos (1) The specific parts to use in the stage and (2) my completed stage.

I hope you find it interesting
