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!
