The number one question we get is "How do I build an X Class Racing Drone?"
We've put together this list of suggested parts for X Class–sized rigs.
This is by no means a complete list of what's out there, but it is a starting point. Several current X Class pilots use some or all of parts.
For advice and tips on building an X Class rig, subscribe to the X Class Facebook Group, where builders get together to discuss, ask questions, and share info.
When you've built your rig, share it with us!

* These motors seem to have the right pedigree and their specs are certainly beefy enough for a gold-standard X Class drone, but they are currently on preorder, so we have yet to test them ourselves. If you use them, let us know how you liked them at email@example.com
