1. Make sure you understand frame types

There are different types of frames available on the market, e.g. tricopter, quadcopter, hexacopter, and octocopter, etc.

Above all, you need to be 100% sure which type of drone you want to build. If this is the first time you have built one, we strongly suggest you select the quadcopter.
