i am using the same stack and reciever for my 1st build, can anyone help me out on how to connect those two ?

i would go with 2306 motors

RZFPV   May 13, 2020 

i would also recommend getting a qx7 as it is only 30$ more and getting a micro fpv cam not a nano

droney   May 13, 2020 

the 2306's i can find have a burst current of 50A and my esc handles 40A

The F40 can handle 50A for shorts periods (10s)

Looks like a solid build, but i would change a few things. These changes would still be a great setup, but also would save a few bucks for batteries, antennas, replacement arms, etc...

My suggestions:
tbs source one frame
Foxeer Razer fpv cam
Fullspeed TX600 vtx
Frsky XM+ (or R-XSR)
BetaFPV LiteRadio 2 (Frsky version)

But, end of the day, it's your build. Enjoy it, it'll be challenging, but once you're in the air, it'll be all worth it. Good luck!

I would look around for another recviever...that micro recieved might not give the range you want...flysky makes some good full range options...good luck with your build...

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
