I love drones, but I hadn't ever owned or flown one up to this point. That was a problem in my head that needed to be solved. I found Hobbyking, a great website for ordering drone/robotics parts(though you need to be very sure of what you want). One thing I didn't realize about them is that it takes 3-4 weeks for them to ship anything to you.
Quick side-story -- I recently bought a battery from them, which they delivered to my old address -- it took them 5 weeks for me to get a refund after it was reshipped to them! I mean slow is one thing, but really!
Okay, so it came about a week before I had to go back to school. I had one week to pack up, say goodbye to my friends, and...build a drone. So let's just say it was less than quality, but it did leave the ground, if only for the smallest amount of time.
BTW -- The screens and lights and most of this stuff actually is salvaged from surrounding neighborhood.
