Hello everyone!

I've been interested in drone races recently and watching 'DIY racing drone' or drone races videos.I really want to start this hobby be an expert.I watched so many videos on youtube but I'm confused.Can you suggest me how should I start? making my own drone or ready to fly drone? I can give max 300-350$ because I know I crash a lot and I just want to learn how to fly and be expert.In time I will buy much more good stuff.In Turkeyi there is only 1 club that interests drone racing but they want me to spend at least 700$ to start.I hope this forum will help me how to get in to it :)

Thank you

Welcome Oz, your budget is pretty low to get a decent fpv set up.
Do you plan on racing or freestyle or just flying for fun.

We all want to be experts but that is something very few achieve.

Goggles alone could chew up your budget depending on what you choose.

Best bet is to spend time around that club and see if you can get some tips and maybe some cheap gear.

OK, well that looks fine to me to start with.
Just be sure to order the right model for you. That is mode 1 which is right stick throttle.
Most fly mode 2 ,left stick throttle.
You will need a good charger and battery checker at least.
As for batteries, let me get back to you.
Will research but gotta sleep now, up early tomorrow (I'm in AUS).
Probably big time difference.

There are just too many choices and we do not know them all, but I think what you have called out above is ok. You are a beginner, you will crash and break things on the quad, so wait until you know you like this hobby and can fly better before you try to spend too much. Many people want to go fly, but this takes time to learn what you need to know to be safe, and to keep from breaking the quad, otherwise your first flight may end up bad and be your last and we don't want that to happen to you. I also would not buy too many batteries or a big charger until you are flying your battery that comes with the Wizard BNF and not crashing before you spend more money
